Parent/Family Support

Dear Parents/Carers,

Your child will have been given a reading diary to accompany the book given by school each week for your child to read at home.

Children should read at home every night for at least 10 minutes per day. Sharing a book together with your child gives you the opportunity to learn together, so please listen to them read regularly.

A parent, guardian, an older family member or your child should record this shared reading in the diary at least twice per week and it should be returned with their homework on a Wednesday. Your child should then be returned home on Friday with either: the same book to continue to read; or they will re-read their current book to improve their fluency or they will start a new book.

Thank you for your support in developing your child's love of reading.
