Taking time out to read with your child is as important at secondary school as it is at primary. The English Department and Library actively seek to develop your child’s reading throughout their school life. You can support further development in their reading by:

  • Encouraging them to read- any text counts whether it is a novel, newspaper or even a web article
  • Discussing what they have read- this develops their comprehension skills
  • Model reading: if they see you reading a paper or novel, they are more likely to do so themselves
  • Listen to audio books- encourage them to download them onto their IPods (they can use the free Kindle app for this)
  • Read the same books they are so that you can discuss them with them so that you can enjoy reading together
