Reading and Phonics

Read to Succeed!


Reading every day with your child at home is key to their success at school.

Statistics show that children who read more, achieve more. At Nansloe we are committed to developing a love of books and promoting the reading habit. Our whole school World Book Day celebrations are well known throughout the local community and our award winning Story Garden means that children can immerse themselves in the joy of story-telling and imaginative play, whatever their age. Two well stocked libraries provide a range of reading materials to stimulate and excite.

In order to reward and celebrate the effort your child puts into their reading, we award 1 point for every day they read at home. As they collect points and reach targets, they are given reading karate bands in a special celebration assembly once a week, where the whole school acknowledges their achievements.  (Please follow the Reading Karate link below to find out more)

The importance of reading at home and securing the skills your child has learnt in school cannot be underestimated. By working together we can make sure they get a great start to their learning journey.
