We ask that you continue to read with your child, asking them questions about what they are reading. Some ideas might include to describe their favourite character, asking them where their story is set and getting them to describe to you what they think it is like and what do they think will happen next. This type of questioning will really help children understand and describe what they are reading and will help them in comprehension questions.
We would also appreciate daily times tables practice. You can challenge your child by asking them the multiplication facts but also the related division facts.
Many thanks for your support with your child’s learning.
The Year 5 Team.
