Reading at Home

Books

Making reading a part of your child´s daily routine can really support their literacy and wellbeing. 

You could read together, read out loud in turns. Your child can also read to a younger sibling. When reading with your child, try to keep the reading sessions fun and relaxed, use different voices, and try to act scenes. Ask questions and discuss the storyline, characters, language, setting. Guess and predict what is going to happen.

After finishing a book, your child can take a quiz on Accelerated Reader. Visit the Accelerated Reader website. Your child then needs to click ‘Student’ before entering their username and password. They should know this from school. If there are any issues logging onto Accelerated Reader, please contact Mr. Opoku on info@harrisbattersea.org.uk. Download a 'reading at home' letter with other ideas too.

Email Miss Henson on r.henson@harrisbattersea.org.uk if you have any queries concerning passwords, reading levels, reading tips or how to find reading materials.
