Reading improves comprehension and students who are good readers tend to achieve better across all areas of the curriculum. A key finding in the recently published literature review The impact of reading for pleasure and empowerment is that reading for enjoyment not only boosts educational outcomes for children, but also enhances their emotional understanding. The study found that reading for pleasure increases empathy, enriches social relationships, reduces symptoms of depression and instils an overall sense of wellbeing. Launching Reading Around Bakewell Reading around Bakewell was launched today (Wednesday 13 February) with our students and we are encouraging parents and carers to participate by taking pictures of you reading to your children and of your children reading independently and to post these to Facebook with the hashtag #readingaroundbakewell or to email them to community.bakewell@ntschools.net. The Bakewell Facebook page will then share these photos to further spread and amplify the message of Bakewells love of reading. On Wednesday afternoons our leadership team will take it in turns to read a book with the whole community to show students that all educators engage in reading and share their love of reading.
