Letters, pictures and words are everywhere! We should encourage our children to find letters, words and even tricky words wherever we are. Make it fun, turn it into a word hunt or a game of I spy.

Helping your child to read at home.

Reading is at the heart of our school curriculum.  We believe that reading provides children with many different opportunities and experiences.  It encourages children to be independent thinkers, stimulates imagination and improves language and vocabulary skills.  At Whitefield Infant School we aim to foster a love and passion for reading, where children read for pleasure and enjoyment.


There are so many opportunities, here are some examples...

There are many ways to support you child with their reading but the most important is to enjoy reading together.  Sharing a book with your child is fun! Story time is perfect for relaxing and talking together.  The children in Reception love story books and we have many favourite authors.


Here's some of the books that the children in Class 3 have been enjoying ...
