Resources for Reading

As well as schools resources, we produce resources to support parents and teachers helping children to read. All of the relevant resources are made available on this page. Please feel free to download and use these resources. If you would like your school's free resources to feature on this page then please send an email with details to office@sdsa.net

Helping Your Child to Read- Films to Support Parents and Children

Eary Years 0-5's-  These films demonstrate early communication techniques and activities to develop positive reading habits whilst at home, out and about or during sessions in a formal setting. These films also look at starting school and the 'learn to read’ activities taking place. 

Primary 5-11's- These films focus on 5 key reading stages; starting to learn to read, making early progress, a reluctant reader, a fluent reader and becoming a more confident reader. The resource provides parents with example activities to take place in the home, out in their daily lives and looks more closely at a child’s reading development in the classroom. 

Secondary 11-14's- These films highlight some of the strategies used in schools to support reluctant readers, children with English as an additional language, individual needs and Literacy across the Curriculum.
