At Isham CE Primary School, reading is a fundamental part of everyday life and an important part of a child’s education. Children learn to read from the very start of primary school and continue that journey throughout primary school and beyond. We want all children to see the benefits of reading, but we also want it to be something that they choose to do because they love it! In school, we regularly try to promote reading for pleasure through story time, author studies and book talk, to name a few. Obviously, reading for pleasure does not end once the children leave the school grounds and much of the children’s enjoyment will come through the books they choose to read at home.


Please find below a useful poster with some handy hints and tips for how you can support your child with reading at home and some posters with 50 suggested reads for each year group.
