Reading P4-7

Although most P4-7 will not have prescribed reading books, we expect that all pupils will read regularly at home. We would urge you to get involved to help your child to foster a love of reading. Some pupils will, at times, be given specific reading tasks, which will be agreed between parent, pupil and teacher. 


“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
― Dr. SeussI Can Read With My Eyes Shut!


Below are some of the ways that you can enjoy some family time and get into reading:

  • Visit the library
  • Read together, whenever you can
  • Newspapers, recipes, comics, shopping lists are all valuable opportunities to get into reading
  • Talk to your child about what they’re reading; and about what you’re reading
  • Research and read about your child’s topic
  • Read before sleeps – Did you know reading a book before falling asleep can improve the quality of your sleep?


‘Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body’

Joseph Addison
