Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Here’s how you can get your child off to a great start.
Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.
In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.
You can make a huge difference! Parents are the most important educators in a child’s life – even more important than their teachers – and it’s never too early to start reading together.
IMPORTANT: ZOOM PROTOCOLS
By accepting the Zoom meeting ID and joining the meeting, with parental responsibility, you agree to the terms set:
It should ideally be supervised by adult to deal with any technical difficulties.
Attendees should be dressed appropriately. No Nightwear. Do not allow children to Zoom whilst in bed.
The meeting ID is to remain confidential and not to be shared to anyone that it was not designated to.
Recording, photos or screenshots of the Zoom meeting are not allowed by participants.
For participants some Zoom facilities will be disabled by the host teacher. This includes but is not limited to the screen record function, chat and screen share.
Children are to have their microphones set to mute, unless they are responding to an adult on the call or the teacher asks them to unmute their microphone.
The pages that the teacher is sharing are only to be annotated by the teacher or if the teacher asks anyone to annotate them.
The same behaviour expectations that are set within a classroom apply to the Zoom meeting.
