Learning to read and write is the basis for all learning and reading is everywhere. With this in mind, our goal is to motivate children to want to read so they will practice reading independently and, thus, become fluent readers. That happens when children enjoy reading.
Through reading, our children find the tools they need to succeed in life since it stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. Having access to information through the printed word is an absolute necessity.
Knowledge is power, and books are full of it. But reading is more than just a practical tool. Through books we can enrich our minds; we can also relax and enjoy some precious leisure moments.
With your help, our children can begin a lifelong relationship with the printed word, so they grow into adults who read easily and frequently whether for business, knowledge, or pleasure.
Our school therefore, strongly encourages your child to engage in some reading activity every night. In the very early years this may be listening to you read or discussing storybooks with you. As they become more competent readers, you can support your child by visiting your local book shops and helping them choose books they enjoy reading.
