Top Tips

"Children who read for pleasure daily, or nearly every day, are a year ahead in reading performance versus those who never do." OECD (2010)


The most effective thing you can do with your child, to help them with their learning, is to read with them. Reading regularly is vital for children’s development. Children don’t only progress as readers, writers, and communicators, but gain a deeper understanding of the wider curriculum. That’s why reading with your child is one of the best things you can do to help them with their learning.

Take a look at our Top Tips video, made by the children in Team Read, for inspiration on how to make the most of your reading time together.
