When listening to your child read at home every evening, it is important to focus on their comprehension skills as much as their decoding of the text. The following link provides ideas for discussion starters, ways of asking questions and generally provides support for parents and carers. You will find this an extremely helpful tool to help move your child's reading forward and keep them interested and challenged.

The prompt sheet is structured for Reception/Year 1/Year 2 and then for Year 3 upwards, however there will obviously be younger children who would benefit from working on older concepts and older children who would become more confident by revising some of the earlier support ideas.

Please feel free to print out this sheet and use it when reading with your child at home.
