Research shows a positive link between reading frequently, enjoyment of reading and educational attainment. Reading for pleasure has positive emotional and social benefits, improves text comprehension and grammar skills and increases general knowledge.
Things you can do at home to help develop your child’s reading ability and enthusiasm;
- Ensure that you child reads at least four times a week and record this in their reading record. If your child completes the reading scheme and becomes a ‘free reader’ it is still very important that they read.
- Talk to your child about the book they are reading.
- Ask questions while they are reading, please see question prompts.
- Read books to your child/read together.
- Visit the library.
Please remember to help your child practise their phonic sounds, their key words and encourage them to play counting games.
