Reading…

  • Make time to read together - this should be a calm time for you both to enjoy!

  • Share books, comics, magazines, catalogues - reading is everywhere and isn’t just your child’s reading book!

  • If your child is tired, you read the book and get them to spot tricky words in the book, help you with sounding out words etc.

  • Make mistakes as you read - children love to be the teacher and will correct you!

  • Use bug club https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login?c=0 - see your child’s reading record for log in details

  • Spend time each day reading - this can be reading signs of shops, practising tricky words, sharing a book, reading labels on items in the cupboard etc.

  • Talk about the book - can the children predict what may happen? can thy find their favourite part?

  • Enjoy reading together!

  • Let your child see you reading at home.

  • Have fun with reading!
