Supporting literacy at home - ideas for parents and carers

We are delighted to let you know about some exciting new materials on Parentzone, which have been produced by Education Scotland and Scottish Book Trust, to support children's reading development and enthusiasm for reading.

There are many ways that parents and carers can build reading activities into everyday routines to support their child's literacy skills.

These new materials, consisting of five videos from early years to secondary, have tips and advice for reading with young children, as well as ideas for encouraging teenagers to read for pleasure.
