Reading

Oxford Owl have lots of books that your child can read online. Some of these books are the reading scheme books that your child will be experiencing from school. Please follow the link below.
We want to encourage you to read a wide range of books, not just the reading scheme books. Adults reading to children is just as important as the child reading as this helps extends their vocabulary.
When reading these reading scheme books, please can we encourage you to share the book more than once to help children in developing their word recognition and understanding of the story.
You could play games with the books such as taking the words from a page and writing these on word cards for the children to muddle up and rearrange to make the sentence. 
You could hunt for particular words (tricky words would be great) and see how many are in each book.

Reading games

Here are some games to support reading. You can use these in reverse to help with writing. For example, with the matching picture to word game, you could ask your child to write the word to match to each picture.
