The Benefits of Reading Together

Sometimes, in our very busy lives, we forget that one of the simplest, cheapest pleasures we can share with our children is reading together. There are so many long term benefits and, as World Book Day approaches, I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to remind ourselves of how reading with our children at the end of the day or on a cosy, wintery evening, is a wonderful chance to explore and lose ourselves in enchantingly magical, mysterious or even Dystopian worlds together.

The Share A Story Fact Sheet from the World Book Day website shares all the benefits of reading that will support your child’s social, personal and intellectual development in addition to fighting of the challenges of growing older for us adults!

All our students have a reading book; sit down, ask them what they are reading and spend just 10 minutes reading together, making memories that will be treasured forever.

Happy Reading,

Mrs Belt
