Homework starts this week. This week’s focus is reading
Ensure that your child’s reading book comes in each day for reading groups.
Each night try some of these activities (no more than about 10 minutes each night):
- talk with your child about the cover of the book : who will be in the story, where are they, what do they think it might be about ?
- Can they tell you their own story from the pictures in the book?
- You could read the book to them – was their story like the book? Maybe it was better!
- Ask them to read it to you, be ready to support them to use all the clues in the pictures and letter sounds as they read.
Please put any comments in the Reading Record for Thursday. You might share any tricky words or just let us know how well your child did!
Remember to enjoy spending this time sharing a book with your child!
