Why Read?
 
Over this half term holidays, we are encouraging our children to keep on reading a wide variety of texts. This can include fictions, non-fiction, comics...even a 'how to guide' if that can engage your children to read. 
 
Reading brings a variety of benefits: 

1. Reading to young children sets them up to succeed

2. Reading develops language skills

3.Exposure to reading exercises your child’s brain

4. Reading enhances a child’s concentration

5. Reading together encourages a thirst for knowledge
