Are you struggling to get your child to read regularly?
A key part of our homework strategy is for children to read at home at least 5 times every week.
We really don’t want this to be a chore - reading should be a fun and enjoyable activity and it is the key way that children can build their vocabulary.
1. Read ANYTHING - you do not have to read the school reading book all the time. Read comics, newspapers, magazines—read ANYTHING that interests your child
2. It does not always have to be your child reading. Read to each other, read to them, listen to stories on devices.
3. Make reading the last thing your child does each day. We sleep better if we read before bed.
4.Make it fun!
