Support At Home

“Today a reader, tomorrow a leader”

                                  -Margaret Fuller

Supporting your child with reading at home will be hugely beneficial to them. So what exactly can you do to help?

You can read to them, read with them, talk to them about their reading material – read it yourself so you can discuss it! They may choose to read sci-fi or fantasy books. Or they may prefer books about football or autobiographies or graphic novels. Support them in reading anything and everything.

Encourage them to use the LRC and ask them about the books they have borrowed. Buy books and other reading materials for them to read with you, or sign up to your local public library for free. If your child is a member of a Hertfordshire Library, they can access Borrowbox, an online library they can use, also free of charge.
