Here at South Farnham School we are committed to promoting reading for pleasure. Studies have shown that children who choose to read, enjoy reading and read regularly reap the benefits:
- socially (gaining an understanding of people, the world, life experiences and ability to empathise and interpret situations)
- academically (through language acquisition, reading proficiency, improved comprehension, greater cognitive development and ability to absorb and understand information in all subjects)
- areas of health (developing self-confidence, self-esteem and emotional vocabulary)
We recommend that whilst your child is at home they are reading for at least 30 minutes a day. This would also include phonics. Please find some support with this below.
Please also enjoy listening to some stories with some familiar faces.
