Supporting Reading

 

 

Here is a link to a recent article about the importance of reading at home.  It emphasises the importance of continuing to read with your child throughout primary school - it has huge benefits for children of all ages.  There are also some great 'top tips' for making reading a successful and enjoyable experience for you and your child...    

 

Top tips for parents

  • Even 10 minutes a day reading with your child is a major help
  • Choose a wide variety of books to introduce different types of language and style
  • Take turns to read aloud to each other. They can learn from your expressive reading and you can check they are not struggling
  • Ask questions about the book - maybe about what might happen next or a character's motivation
  • Make sure they understand any new or unusual words or phrases
  • Enjoy it - "try and lose yourselves in a good story!"
