Did you know that the average reading age in England is just 9 years old? This is obviously a really sad statistic. At Royd we are committed to getting every child reading. We want children to be fluent readers, who can comprehend (answer questions) and more importantly to love reading. Because of this Royd has invested £8,000 on books. £4,000 has been spent on books used within school and the other £4,000 has been spent on books that parents / carers can take home. Please help us to support our aim of getting every child reading by taking a book home from school and reading with them every night. You can read as many or as few pages as you wish! Your child doesn’t have to always read to you, please read to them so that they get to listen to stories and enjoy them. Thank you for your support!
