Tips for how you can support your child’s Reading at home:

Reading regularly at home is extremely important for children’s literacy development. When your child is reading to you, you might like to ask some of the following questions to support their development:

·       Based on the front cover, what do you think the story will be about?

·       What has happened in the story so far?

·       What do you think is going to happen next?

·       Do you like this book? Why? / Why not?

·       Where is the story set?

·       What sort of book is it? Fiction or information text? How can you tell?


I hope this information is useful. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a message on Dojo or speak to me on the playground.

Kind regards

Miss Baillie
