Benefits of reading


Reading is beneficial to everyone and we would encourage all pupils, staff, parents, and carers to read for pleasure and enjoyment.

Some of the benefits of reading include: increasing vocabulary and comprehension; empowering you to empathise with other people; aiding in sleep readiness; reducing stress; improving brain connectivity; preventing cognitive decline as you age. (Information from healthonline.com)
