Reading at home

Please read daily with/to your child. Your child is half way through Key Stage One now and it is crucial that you support your child now more than ever to feel confident in decoding and discussing what they have read before they enter KS2. Please see the KS1 Reading Vipers document in useful information. No matter how fluent your child is at reading, understanding what they have read is hugely important. This document lists question stems to refer to when reading with your child. It is vital that your child doesn’t simply decode the words in their book but are being challenged to explain their understanding of what they have read or have listened to.

 

Many thanks
