Children Reading At Home
Children should aim to read DAILY at home. This can come in many forms...
- Aim to practise your school reading book as often as possible. Definitely read it more than once. With each read, you will discover new things - your brain can pay closer attention to comprehension, expression and fluency.
- Share stories with a grown up at bedtime. Whether you read them yourself, are read to, or take turns, this creates a calm, loving and valuable night-time routine.
- Read widely - leaflets on days out, magazines, comics, factual books and all kinds of fiction.
To broaden your library, please make use of the following:
- Bug Club Books
- Serial Mash Books (Please note, these will likely be set in the event of extended periods of home learning)
- Epic Books (You can sign up for a free account with access to 1 book per day. If you wish, you can also connect to our class via a code, but be aware that other class members will also then be able to see your first name on the log-in page.)
Parental Support for Reading at Home
You can either read through the PDF below at your own leisure or watch/listen along to the video below - we've had to link it to the Video Resource Page due to the size of it, and it does run a bit long. We would normally run this as an interactive workshop, not just talk for so long, but these are strange times and of course we can't meet you all face-to-face.
