Weekly reading ideas
● You could share a story together. This could be a chapter book where you read and discuss a chapter a day.
● Adults: Listen to your child read and let them discuss what they have read. Encourage them to read with expression and intonation.
● Watch Newsround and discuss what is happening in the wider world.
Explore new vocabulary you find when reading. What are the origins of this word? Can it be modified? Can you find any synonyms or antonyms for your new word?
● Adults: With your child, look in magazines, newspapers and books for new vocabulary they are unfamiliar with. They could use a highlighter to note any points of interest and practise ‘summarising’ techniques.
