In addition, students should be reading regularly at home – we recommend 20-30 minutes per night.

International research suggests that there is a positive relationship between reading frequency, reading enjoyment and attainment. In fact, reading enjoyment has been reported as more important for children’s educational success than their family’s socio-economic status. Most importantly, it’s fun and provides a break from the smart phone!
