 Top Tips

  • Read, read and read!
  • Share books with your children- you read to them, they read to you.
  • Discuss books and stories — characters, events, endings etc.
  • Make suggestions for a different ending, new character etc
  • Join the local library & encourage your child to choose their books— this helps to develop preferences etc.
  • Don’t forget rhymes and poems!
  • Encourage your child to write shopping lists, notes, postcards, diaries.
  • Encourage correct letter formation — this will help with cursive writing later.
  • Play I spy using phonic/sounds- don’t forget endings!
  • Practise reading and spelling keywords.
  • Have fun!
