Why should you read for 20 minutes daily?


Reading is at the heart of everything we do at Newton Primary School. The children read daily in one guise or another, whether it is in their daily phonics lesson or as part of their topic lesson.


We encourage all of our children, however fluent they are to read aloud at least three times a week. Each class has a reward system for this. As the children become more fluent, reading homework may become a discussion of a book to ensure the children have a deep understanding of the novels they are reading.
