Home Reading

At Plaistow we know that reading at home is the most important piece of home learning you can do with your child each day.

We have high expectations for our children reading at home. 

  • Starting in the Early Years, if a child reads 20 minutes a day at home, they will hear 1.8 million words per year. 
  • They will have read for 851 hours by Year 6 and on SATS tests, they will likely score better than 90% of their peers.

All children are expected to read at home every night. A parent/ carer must engage with their child’s reading and sign their reading record every day.
