READING: As mentioned previously, your child will be building up a range of reading skills. They should have strong phonics knowledge and growing comprehension skills, which will help them read more broadly, confidently, and fluently. Please encourage your child to read for at least 10 minutes each day. Ask them to read aloud to a member of your family.  Remember to talk about the book.

  • What might happen next?
  • How do you think the character is feeling? Why do you think that?
  • What happened in the story?
  • Can you find a word that means the same as ............?
  • What is the definition of .........?  If you don't know, can you find it in the dictionary?
  • Did you enjoy the story? Why?
  • Have you read a different story that has similar themes in to this story?

Remember to refer back to the text when answering the questions.
