In dosbarth Paddington, we absolutely love reading and know it's one of the most important things you can do with a child!
This year we will be using a new app called 'Giglets'; this app will open a whole world of reading for all of us to enjoy! It will allow you to read specific books tailored to your child at home and at school. As well as this, we will be using Giglets during our Guided Reading sessions; this means that your child will have both a personal book and a group book to read.
The importance of Reading
Reading will be the best thing you can do with your child to support their learning; even if it is spending 5 minutes before bed reading their favourite book, or reading signs and posters in a shop, even down to reading subtitles on the telly - get reading! We will be doing our absolute best to get every child reading as often as possible as it truly does impact the rest of a child's ability to learn.
We spend the last 10 minutes of every day reading stories as a class; these stories are simply for the pure enjoyment of reading! Your child is welcome to bring in their favourite stories from home and we can read through them!
