Get lost in a book – parents of Year 7 and 8 students
At Sandown Bay Academy we take reading seriously. We regularly get lost in a book. We know that reading each day for 20 minutes makes a difference. That is why we stop to read each day in lessons and/or tutor time. You can help at home by reading to your child or asking them to read aloud to you. Every student in Year 7 and 8 should have a reading book in school. We ask that this book is on Accelerated Reader and then they can enjoy a quiz on the book. However, when they read to you at home it could be anything – the daily newspaper, a magazine, a letter or a book. You choose. Let them choose. Just read. Please help us to help your son or daughter by encouraging reading at home.
