Reading at Burnside

Reading daily improves vocabulary and language skills.

Children learn new words as they read. Subconsciously, they absorb information on how to structure sentences and how to use words and other language features effectively in their writing and speaking. 


All pupils who attend Burnside are expected to read at home every day. This may be to a parent, other adult or independently, if able. Teachers will be checking pupils' reading records  signing them weekly to ensure that this is happening and will be following up with pupils and parents when it is not to see how we can support you.


As well as signing their reading every day pupils and parents are encouraged to discuss the meanings of any new words.


It was a pleasure to visit classes last week and see and hear so many pupils reading beautifully.


Due to our pupils commitment to reading some of our books are looking well worn which is actually a good thing!! We have invested several hundreds of  pounds today, replacing copies of the children's favourite titles and we thank you for looking after the books so well at home so they can be enjoyed by many children.
