Reading at home

Reading at home if the school is shut

If there's one thing I would recommend all children do whilst at home, it would be to read. Just 15 minutes a day throughout the closure would be so beneficial. You can obviously read any books you have at home but you can also register on the Oxford Owl website for free and find a range of ebooks available.

Another great pack of printable worksheets can be found on the twinkl website which have given free access to parents during the school closure. Unfortunately the file is too large to put on here but I was able to upload the 60 second read activity pack. There are plenty to choose from along with guidance for adults. To meet age related expectations, year 2 children are expected to read fluently at a rate of at least 90 words a minute!

For free twinkl access go to 

Enter the code CVDTWINKLHELPS. There are lots of ebooks and comprehension activities there which are unfortunately too large to save here!
