Reading with your child

Please ensure you listen to your child read at home when their book has been sent and don’t forget to sign the record!

When reading please ask your child questions to check their understanding of what they have read.

Questions to ask:

Tell me about what you have read so far?  Who is in the book?  What information do you remember?  What do you think will happen next?  Why has the character done this?  How do you think they are feeling?

Remember to encourage lots of writing at home as we discussed on Parents’ Afternoon.

Use the ‘Handy Hints’ sheet to help.
