“The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you’ll go.” Dr Zeuss

Please encourage your child write for real purposes at home such as birthday cards or shopping lists. But remember, not all writing needs to be done with pencil and paper! Why not try chalk on the ground, alphabet pasta or letters cut from magazines? For further information or activities, click here.
With your support, these experiences will enable your child to see the value in learning to read and write and explore literacy in the wider world.
