Reading is an all encompassing skill, it doesn't live just in school, but also at home too. We have gathered some resources to help support your reading journey outside of the classroom.


Top Tips


  • Use our Accelerated Reader program to keep track of your child's reading. Username is your child's username, password is PASSWORD.
  • Encourage your child to read at home for at least 20 minutes per day. Set up a routine to make this easier.
  • Look for things your children might like to read. Use their interests and hobbies as starting points.
  • Encourage your child to read aloud and not worry about getting every word right. Suggest they read to a family pet.
  • Set aside a special place for children to keep their own books.
  • Let your children see you reading for pleasure in your spare time.
  • Visit the library regularly and explore the children’s section together.
  • Encourage older children to read to their younger brothers and sisters.
  • Share your reactions to things you read, books are brilliant for discussion.
  • Read aloud to your child, whether it's a new article or a passage, it all counts.
