Reading at Home

Sharing a book with a child is fun! It's a time for closeness, laughing and talking together – and it can also give children a flying start in life and help them become lifelong readers.

Here are some top tips for encouraging and supporting your child to read at home.

Books for Nursery Children Books for Reception Children 

Books for Year 1 Children  Books for Year 2 Children 

Books for Year 3 Children Books for Year 4 Children 

Books for Year 5 Children Books for Year 6 Children 

Research has shown that sharing a story at bedtime not only helps to create loving memories and establish a calm routine for healthy sleep, but also helps foster a bond between parents and children; lower children's stress levels and reinforce literacy skills and mastery of language.

Whilst there's nothing quite like having a physical book to look at and explore, we appreciate that every now and then, sharing a story online can be fun too!
