Home Learning - Reading
We can't stress how important it is to keep children reading during this period. It's not just about reading alone - here's a few ideas:
-Older siblings reading to younger ones
-Family story time
-Book snuggles (cosy up with a book OR read in a den you have made)
-Audio books (sites like Audible are great)
-Read challenging texts to older children (they still like to be read to)
-I read a page / you read a page - share the load
-Act the story out or re-tell it from memory - be brave and bold and daft! Do the voices!
Whatever way you do it, keep books at the heart of your family time! See the links below for access to some online reading resources.
