At St Bridget's we are passionate about reading!

Reading for pleasure is at the heart of all our teaching of reading.

Evidence supports what we have always believed – that reading for pleasure enables children to excel in all curriculum areas.

“To learn to read is to light a fire, every syllable that is spelled out…. is a spark!”  Victor Hugo

Reading is important because it develops the mind. Teaching children to read helps them develop their language skills. Learning to read is about listening and understanding as well as working out print. Through hearing stories, children are exposed to a rich and wide vocabulary. This helps them build their own vocabulary and improve their understanding when they listen, which is vital as they start to read. Good readers produce good writers!

Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance.

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.

Please ensure you hear your child read a minimum of three times a week and sign the reading record to confirm it has been completed. Fifteen minutes a day is all we ask!
