Please encourage your child to read daily - this can be in the form of a book, age appropriate newspaper article, magazine, leaflet, recipe, instructions etc. The more variety, the better - reading isn't just about picking up a book.

Once you have listened to your child read, please encourage them to log into their Go Read account (our new, digital reading journals) to log their reading. 



Here is a list of books we'll enjoy listening to in Year 4 this year. Below is a document where you will find links if you would like to purchase any of these to read at home.

As a class, we collect 77 items for the food bank - Well Done Venus!

How To Read With Your Child

Parents MUST help their children become interested in reading if they are to succeed in school. These 5 tips will make reading with your child more effective...

Daily reading is an essential to aid your child's development in all curriculum areas.


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.

Reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.


What difference can YOU make as a parent?

You can make a huge difference! Parents are the most important educators in a child’s life – even more important than their teachers – and it’s never too early or too late to start reading together.
