English Home Learning Week 1 and Week 2


*Share pleasure in reading with your child. Encourage your child to explore a range of books such as stories, poems, information books and comics. Talk about favourite books and characters. Ask questions such as ‘Where was the story set?’ ‘What happened in the story?’ ‘Which part was your favourite?’

*See if your child can spot any of the ‘whizzy words’ in the books that you share. Perhaps put a ‘whizzy word’ on the doors in your house as passwords for your child to read before entering a room!

Remember to keep reading with your child everyday! This could be just sharing a story together, your child reading to you or practicing their 'Whizzy words" (sight recognition words). Please see the video below on how to get your child to read independently.
