Reading

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.
