It is extremely important for your child to read regularly at home. This not only benefits their understanding of a variety of texts but is a ticket to learning new knowledge, enabling an imagination and having a range of ideas that can be transferred into writing.
To support your child at home with their reading you could use lots of different questioning techniques. Asking your child to repeat/ summarise what they have read or picking specific events in the book to talk about will help you to understand what they have learnt. You can find lots of example questions to ask your child below.
