Reading at home

I would strongly encourage children to read at least three times a week. At least one of these should be out loud. I know parents are sometimes unsure of what questions to ask their child when they have read so I have uploaded some examples of questions from KS1 and LKS2 I might ask in guided reading and comprehension lessons and could be asked at home.

Our exciting class read.

Our book was chosen by the class at the start of the new academic year. With the Afghan. crisis over the summer of 2021 and children knowing Afghanistanian refugees within Sherburn, the children were interested in reading a story and learning about the experience a refugee may go through during their life.
