In year the children are expected to read everyday. They are encouraged to read independently, however it is important that they read with an adult so that they can learn important reading skills like  inferencing and comprehending the information from the text read. As we want our children to develop a love for reading, we are encouraging the children to choose their own book and read at fifteen minutes daily at home/ a chapter everyday. When they have completed these books they can share it with an adult and then get another book.
