You can support your child at home with their reading by sharing a wide range of texts- any text, it doesn’t matter if it is a novel, non-fiction book, graphic comic; anything that sparks their imagination. They can read to themselves, out loud or you read to them. It is all about developing fluency and comprehension and should happen regularly.  Below are a series of questions to support your child when reading. Click on the link to download the document.

Your child will also have a reading bookmark to remind them of the skills and activities they can do whilst reading.

Below is a list of websites for your child to practise their numeracy skills.
