We are going to start the school year with some fantastic tips to keep children and parents reading together, children in Unit 1 and Unit 2 greatly benefit from daily reading and enjoy this special time which they will get your undivided attention.
Below are some top tips to make this enjoyable:-
- Talk about the book with your child before reading – in the inside cover you will find the sounds, words and tricky words that are included in that book.
- Encourage your child to read a section again to make sure it makes sense and to improve the expression.
- Most children read using phonics, individual sounds s,a,t,n,i,p, then put them together
- i + t = it s + a + t = sat
- If they are finding a book difficult, don’t ask your child to sound out every word – focus on words you know that your child can decode.
- Sometimes read with your child (paired reading) or take it in turns to read a page.
- Draw your child’s attention to repeated words – encourage them to read them by sight, instead of sounding out.
- Encourage your child to talk about what they are reading as they are going along, not just at the end – can they predict, comment, explain what’s happening?
- Keep reading sessions short and enjoyable – reading should never be a chore! In school, your child has access to a wide range of reading material including swap a book from their class box, our school library and their weekly reading books. Each child across the whole school has a reading journal; in the centre of these books you will find sounds, high frequency words and common exception words. A number of children in Unit 2 will be paired with a Reading Buddy from Unit 3 in the coming weeks. This is to encourage an enjoyment of reading. In order for us to do this reading books and journals will be needed in school each day. Both children enjoy this experience, which will take place during lunch times.
Unit 3 and 4
When children enter into KS2 they have acquired the important skills of blending and reading fluently. Children need to continue to use these skills; however we would like children to further develop comprehension skills. It is essential that the children are exposed to challenging vocabulary and books that contain unfamiliar contexts. Questions to support comprehension can be found in the back of school reading books.
- Independent readers still need your support to develop as readers!
- Discuss books with them – try reading the same book so you can talk about it
- Ask them to prepare a section to read aloud to you
- Encourage them to ask you if they come across new words
- Periodically ask them to read aloud to you
- Encourage them to read a range of texts
On the 13th September children across the school will celebrate a Roald Dahl and work from this will be displayed across school, why don’t you share your favourite Roald Dahl book with your child?
If you require further help with your child’s reading please speak to the class teacher or to our Reading Champion, Mrs Bollington.
