National Read a Book Day

81% of us don’t feel that we spend enough time as we would like reading. To celebrate National Read a Book Day on Monday 6th September, classrooms around Bushey Meads School fell silent for 10 minutes of silent reading to start lessons.

Evidence suggests that reading for pleasure has a positive impact on attainment. Benefits of children reading include: increasing breadth of vocabulary, increasing text comprehension and grammar, developing positive reading attitudes, better general knowledge, a better understanding of other cultures and a greater insight into human nature and decision-making. This is why reading takes such a central role at Bushey Meads School, with regular Drop Everything and Read events (DEAR) and dedicated library studies lessons.
