Reading at home tips
- Find a time that is good for your family routine each day to read the book.
- Encourage your child to talk about the pictures, characters and setting. There is a list of questions you can ask in the diary.
- Ask your child to make predictions about what will happen in the book.
- If your child comes across a word that is unfamiliar, talk about the meaning.
- Remember to sign the diary everytime you read at home, so they can get a sticker for their reward chart.
- Please watch the videos below to help your child apply their phonic knowledge to read the words.

This website contains a free e-book library, search for level 1+ or 2 books, we also use these in school. There is an option for your children to listen to the story as well as read it. I would recommend using one phonics book a week and read real books everyday. The children benefit from exploring a combination of fiction and non-fiction texts.
