Helping with Reading


As I am sure you will agree reading is one of the most important skills our children learn. Once they become confident readers they can unlock a whole world of information and knowledge.


We place great emphasis on the teaching of reading in school, investing a great amount of money in providing exciting books and technology as well the staff to teach and support. This enables us to ensure that each child reads every day in school.


As children become more confident with phonics and decoding the emphasis changes from how to read (technically reading ) to understanding more deeply what they are reading about (comprehension).


We can do as much as we can in school but to be really successful readers children need daily practice outside of the classroom and this is where you can help. It is a proven fact that those children who read regularly at home are the most successful.


For ideas about how you can help at home have a look at our Supporting reading booklet:

Driffield CE Infant School Helping your Child to Read

We use an online resource to support reading called Bug Club. Children in Y1 and 2 have log in details in their reading record. Foundation Children will be given these when they are ready. Books are allocated at the right level for each child. Click on the icon to go to the site.
