"Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.
In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background."
At Sacred Heart, child recieve daily reading lessons from reception to year 6. Through this, their work is collated in reading journals demonstrating the progression of their reading over the year. These lessons focus primarily on retrieval, inference and choice questions.
At Sacred Heart, we use Reading Bingo to promote a love of reading as well as reward children who show a commitment and dedication to reading. This is an initiative designed by the staff at Sacred Heart to meet the specific needs of children in our school community.
Here you will find book recommendations for every year group in school. Have a look then see if you can find the book in your local library or why not try the mobile library at Sacred Heart every Monday after school. Enjoy
