Here at Atherton we recognise and value the importance of reading to enhance both our literacy skills and knowledge of the world around us. Reading not only improves our word knowledge, spelling, understanding of punctuation (life skills), but it is also good for our emotional health and well-being.
Who knows how the world will change for us and our young people, but one thing is certain, we will always need the skill of reading.
Experiencing the pure joy of engaging our imagination in a good story or learning more about our world from a factual text is something we can do without leaving our chair.
