Here is a guide to helping your child get the most out of reading at home:-
1. When your child is reading, ask them questions about what they are reading. This is called retrieval and is a key skill for any young reader.
What was his name?
Where was she going to play football?
Why was the robot upset?
2. At Poplars we hope that every child reads 3x a week at home for more than 5 minutes at a time. This doesn't have to be from their reading book; it can be a magazine, a poster, a play, it can be anything!
3. Please record your child's reading in their home school records. This helps the teachers and TA's to see who is reading and how much they read. Teachers/TA's will write a comment each week about a child's home reading and award house points accordingly!
