Check the level of the book your child was sent home with (children not reading on wider choice or free).
Remember, it’s important to check understanding by asking questions about the text.
Can your child make a sensible prediction of what might happen next based on what they have read?
Can they say how a character might be feeling?
Can they sequence the events?
Good reading isn’t just about saying the words aloud.
