Helping your child with home learning - what to do:  

Reading (15/20 minutes).

  • If your child is completing the reading scheme then please ask an adult or older sibling to hear them read their school reading book. If you do not have a school reading book, you can use a picture book from home or an online book.
  • Talk to them about what they have read, perhaps ask them questions such as; What does this word mean on this page? Can you think of another word that means the same? Which bit made you feel…….?’How does the character feel on this page - why? 
  • Listen out for them reading confidently, without having to sound each word out individually.

Writing (20/30 minutes)
