Supporting Reading at Home

Children need support to develop the habit and love of reading. We are regularly asked for ideas to help our families achieve this.  The Open University has identified three core strategies support readers, through their research:

*Reading aloud   

*Time to read as a family    

*Book chat

So ‘just relax and read’. Time and space to hear stories and to read and talk informally about what you’re reading makes a difference to children’s pleasure in reading.
