  • Read a few pages from your reading book each day.  Grown-ups please ask questions about what has been read and ask your child to predict what might happen next.  Can your child retell the story?  Can they talk about how the characters felt at different points in the story?                                    
  • Make sure you can read and spell all of the Y1 Common Exception Words.  Choose up to 5 that you're not sure of to practise.                                  
  • If you can read and spell the Y1 Common Exception Words, see how many of the Year 2 list you can read and spell.  Choose up to 5 to practise.  Try writing a sentence for each of the words you're practising.
