Reading at Home

We are currently unable to send reading books home due to the restrictions created by Covid-19. However, please rest assured that we are reading Lilac (wordless) stories in school with your child.


We are building the children's reading comprehension skills by encouraging them to look at picture books with an adult. We talk about the book together and think about what might be happening on each page. Afterwards, we will ask the children to look through the book again, this time retelling the story out loud using their own words.


You can help support your child with their reading comprehension by asking them to retell simple familiar stories using their own words. You can use your child's favourite stories at home to help with this.
