Our aim is for children to choose to read at home for their own pleasure.
Whilst children are learning to read fluently and confidently, they need adults or older siblings to read with them regularly. We ask for this to happen at least five times a week and we reward our Star Readers who do this consistently throughout the term.
Please see the documents below for more information about how to support your child with their reading at home. You will also find information about Havering Library Service, links to stories being read aloud and a great website with suggestions of books for your child to try if they enjoyed a particular author or book.
There are also some short films designed to help parents, families and carers read conversationally and creatively to and with children. They highlight book chat (the informal interaction that accompanies quality reading) and the supportive use of open questions, comments and prompts: https://ourfp.org/supporting-rah/book-chat-reading-with-your-child/
