Reading at home is imperative throughout school. We encourage children in Year 6 to be reading for at least 15 minutes per night. Here are some helpful questions you can use whilst reading with your child.
Can your child find evidence directly from the story to answer your questions?
The answer is right there in the text.
Can your child think and search for the answer?
The answers are found in different parts of the story and they might have to apply prior knowledge or personal experience to an answer.
Can your child answer questions without referring to the story?
The answer is not in the story, it is your child’s opinion and thoughts.
