Reading at Alexander McLeod


Thank you for viewing our reading page. 

'Every Child a Reader by six' is what we want for all of our children at Alexander McLeod primary School - to be successful, confident readers, but, above all, to ENJOY reading!  

One of the ways you can help with this is to read regularly with your child. We ask that children read at least five times each week, and that you record this in their reading diary.  

Remember - two of the best ways to help your child to become a reader are:

    1. To let them see YOU enjoy reading! 

    2. To continue to read books to your child - even when they can read

        themselves! Never underestimate the value of story time!  

Another way you can help us to achieve our aim of Every Child a Reader by six is to become a reading volunteer. If you can spare a morning or afternoon each week, or even every now and then, to listen to children read, we would be very grateful. Training will be given, and any volunteers will be DBS checked, to comply with our Safeguarding policy. Helping children to become successful readers is incredibly rewarding; why not give it a try? Please speak to Ms Lucken or your child's class teacher, if you are interested.
