Children's ability to read is so important to their future success.
Readiting helps to:
build children's confidence
expand their knowledge base
improve their concentration
develop their speaking, listening and writing skills
develop critical and analytical thinking skills
develop their memory
improve their vocabulary
Reading is also a skill that will bring them enormous enjoyment throughout their life. At St Joseph's we are committed to teaching children the skills they need to succeed in reading but also to inspire them to read for pleasure and become readers for life!
