Words for Life website
The Words for Life website is an excellent tool for parents to learn how they can introduce their children to reading, poetry, new learning skills and much more with the overall aim of helping to raise national literacy levels.
The website is the National Literacy Trust’s website specifically for parents – please do encourage parents to visit this website.
Parents will be able to gain useful tips from top authors, find out about the latest ‘recommended reads’ that children will love, and there’s lots of fun information on family reading games and downloadable activities.
