The Importance Of Reading


Recently, Y7 have taken their Star reading tests. This determines their individual reading age and a new reading target, they aspire to achieve.

Reading is extremely important! Students should aim to read 30 minutes per day. Reading stimulates a child’s mind and it uses their incredible imagination.

When reading, a new World is opened up for you. For example, when reading Harry Potter you are transported to Hogwarts or Diagon Alley. You can literally taste the chocolate frogs and Butterbeer!

I absolutely love reading and I encourage all Y7 students to read, as much as they can.
