Helping your child at home
The best thing you can do to help your child in their learning is to model good reading.
Reading is so much more than the mechanical act of reading the words. Yes, it is phonics and decoding and working out what is says and means but the magical world that it opens up for children’s imaginations is the key to all learning.
You need to explore, talk about and discuss stories, books, facts and fiction so that children can experience all the different facets of the world they live in.
If you want to help your children learn show them how to be a good reader by reading with them, to them and for them. Engender the love of reading and you will open the door to their learning.
