How to develop your Child's Reading

Please find attached below the PowerPoint presentation from the Key Stage Two Family Learning Meeting entitled 'How to Develop Your Child's Reading'.

Once a child has learnt how to decode print, s/he needs to be able to develop his/her comprehension skills. This is a vast task as reading encompasses many different text types and genres.

The information included suggests ways in which your child may be encouraged to broaden his/her skills and also suggests where to look to find great books and authors. Additionally, if you find your child has favourite authors which s/he rereads over and over, there are suggested authors and titles which have similar themes or styles but which will lead their reading forward.

Ideas and questions for parents to use whilst discussing reading with their child is also available here as is information regarding the assessment of reading in school.

Handouts and Additional information has also been included as attachments below.
