Reading is one of the biggest life skills that we can give our children. In an ideal world we would love all of our children to read on a daily basis but definitely three times a week is a minimum. It is vital that our children not only read but that they are read to. Children love listening to stories, no matter how old they are. Please - share books, talk about books, join the library…make it a special time to sit and read together.
Reading is at the heart of our curriculum and we are determined to ensure that everyone leaves Morley Victoria with the reading skills to cope with the next stage of their education. We work on reading at school in various different ways – individually, in pairs, in groups and some of our oldest children even go and read to some of our youngest children! This is a real privilege and such a treat to watch. We are lucky that our children have access to a range of different books in our libraries and class book corners. We also have a book saving scheme operating in Foundation Stage to encourage that love of books from the very start. We are always open and looking at ways to further encourage reading – let us know if you have any ideas.
