We know that regular reading for pleasure and parents showing an interest in children’s reading has a huge impact on children’s progress. This is why it forms the backbone of our homework approach. At school, we constantly look for opportunities to help families support their children with both reading and language development. The Oxford Owl website (click on image) is full of practical and proven tips, from children’s author Julia Donaldson, to help your children both engage with and get better at reading.
