READING: Whilst it is important to listen to your child read, at this age, it is also important to be questioning your child's understanding. Here are a list of questions you could use to ask your child as they are reading:

- What do you remember so far?

- What do you think might happen next?

- Who are the key characters in the book?

- Why is (character X) feeling that way?

- Why did the author use (word X) and why?

- Can you find some amazing adjectives/verbs/adverbs?

- Why do you think the character did that?

- What other stories have you read that are similar?

- What period is the story set in and why do you think that?
