How often should I being reading?

The short answer is, as often as you like! During a normal school day, every student has a minimum of 20 minutes dedicated to reading.

To help continue this habit while at home, we are encouraging students to aim to read at least 2—3 times a day for 20 minutes. if you can, including 20 minutes reading aloud to a parent, sibling or even a pet! Try and build in one reading aloud session each day.

Guidance for parents

Here are a few other tips that you might try:

  • Read together with your child, reading out loud in turns. Could your child read to a younger sibling?
  • Try to keep the reading sessions fun and relaxed, perhaps by using different voices, or acting out scenes.
  • Ask questions and discuss the storyline, characters, language, setting. Guess what is going to happen.
  • Track your progress through our HABE reading at home log and send the results to our librarian for faculty points.
  • Keep praising your child, especially when they find reading difficult.

Remember, if you have any queries concerning reading, please email our librarian Ms Mazwi (b.mazwi@harrisbeckenham.org.uk). We're here to support you in any way we can.

And don't forget to tell us how you're getting on. This is new territory for all of us and it's great to learn from each other.
