Reading

At Christ Church, we ask our parents to listen to their child read for 15 minutes each day. Not only is this a proven way of allowing a child’s confidence and love for books to grow but it’s a fantastic way to spend time with your child too! Christ Church follow Read Write Inc. for the teaching of phonics and Oxford Reading Tree scheme for developing reading skills. Their website offers a great deal of resources and advice on learning to read. Click here to visit the website.
