Reading at Middleton

Reading is the single most important aspect of all children's education. Children who read for pleasure enjoy better opportunities throughout life as they have gained a richer vocabulary, more knowledge and key thinking skills. There is much evidence to support this; for instance, research carried out by the Institute of Education found that children who read for pleasure make more progress in vocabulary, spelling and maths than their peers who rarely read.

At Middleton, we believe that our partnership with parents and carers is vital in ensuring that every child is successful. Your support with reading in particular has a significant impact on your child's progress within school.

Here are some links to information that we hope you will find helpful. Please don't hesitate to ask your child's class teacher if you have any questions about what you can do to help with reading at home.
