Year 1

Welcome to Year 1

Reading is crucial to all children's learning - and in Year One the children are establishing those important building blocks for knowing how to read.


Please read the following information from researchers in the United States who were looking at the impact of parents reading with, and listening to, their child at home:

“…Here’s how many words kids would have heard by the time they were 5 years old:                                                                                                            

Never read to, 4,662 words;                                                                                  

1–2 times per week, 63,570 words;                                                    

3–5 times per week, 169, 520 words;                                                                                                Daily, 296,660 words;                                                                                                      

and five books a day, 1,483,300 words.”

Which parent are you?


Let's make this year really count - please read with your child every day - it will make such a difference and be an amazing gift for life!
