Supporting Reading KS2

Here is a copy of the reading strategies we use in school. These are ways we teach your child how to work out an unknown word.

KS2 Reading Strategies

If your child is engaging with home learning you could:
* Set aside time for your child to read their school reading book.
* Encourage your child to use Bug Club. This is an excellent way of accessing books at their level because your child’s teacher will have assigned books they should be able to read.
* Listen to an online story e.g. CBeebies Bedtime Stories
* If your child has their own books you could ask them to do a task based on their favourite book. They could write a book review, read their book to a teddy/sibling, find another similar book or even turn their books into a home library.
