Reading books with your child is very important.  This can be you reading to them,  them reading to you and joint reading.  It is important that they read to you, books appropriate to their reading ability, at least 3 times a week. We’d suggest Bug Club as your first port of call.  Re-reading the same books several times is good practice.

Teach your monster to read

A great free(if used on a computer) resource is  suggested by one of our parents.  The children can get lost in a progressive game which helps them to learn to read! Mr Holt had to tear himself away from playing to do some other work! 



Bug Club

Another free resource is   Here you can create a log in and use some of their resources for free.
