Reading list

As you may already know, with young children, it is vitally important, not only to teach them to read, using a systematic phonics approach, and listening to them reading phonics books based upon their level of ability, it is also vital to read to your child.

Reading to your child enables them to foster a love for reading, improve their language development, and is generally an enjoyable experience for parent and child. The book you read to them should generally be a harder level than you would expect them to read. We have produced a list of high quality books that we will be sharing in class. You may find that you wish to purchase or borrow from the library some of these books. Please find the list below  and some other links with information about the importance of sharing books with your child.
