Reading is the most effective way to help your child progress across the school curriculum.
Compare the writing of 2 children.
Child A reads & child B plays computer games, watches TV & presses buttons on their phone!
The writing of child A is some much better than child B. Their sentence structure, spelling, vocabulary & quality of story always wins. Child A is wide awake after a good night’s sleep, child B spends the morning yawning & being told off by their teacher for not listening! Child A is much happier, lost in the tales of their story, child B is sending text messages backwards & forwards & cannot escape the confines of their classroom , even at 9pm.
