Reading at Home
Listening to your child read regularly at home has a huge impact on all their academic achievements.
We aim for our children to develop a love of reading and therefore read for enjoyment.
It is essential that they fully understand what they are reading and this is why questioning them is so very important.
Here are some possible questions to ask when hearing your child read:
Which part did you like best? Did you find anything fun?
Who did you like best in the story? Why?
Did any part of the story surprise you?
