Reading for Pleasure

At Bushmead we aim to promote and encourage children to want to pick up books and read. We want to drive the desire to want to read not only for academic advancement but also for pleasure. Sometimes as a reader we need support, encouragement and guidance to direct us towards books to choose. Books that will interest and motivate a love towards reading. As a parent, book recommendations can support your role in doing this. Below you will find guidance to help you guide and support your child with their reading.
