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 and encourage them to talk to you about it.
* 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 sibling, find another similar book or even turn their books into a home library.
