At Holyoakes we believe that reading is central to a child's understanding of the school curriculum as well as being an important life skill. It is part of everything that we do in the classroom and across the school. Therefore, it is vitally important that your child continues to read regularly at home, on a daily basis when they are younger and at least 3 times a week as they become more fluent and independent.

Sharing books, reading to and with you child is one of the easiest and most important things that you can do with them at home.

Being a reader, means that your child can read the text given to them, as well as show a good understanding of what they have read through discussion and answering questions.

Below we have provided some useful tips and questions that will support you with reading with your child at home.


Please also refer to the phonics web page as this will help you understand how children learn to read at our school.
