1-to-1 Reading

Take a look at some of our 1-to-1 Reading sessions below. When reading with your child, why not try some of the techniques showcased here:

Before you read a story with your child:

- Talk about the title and the pictures on the cover, and look through the book together. 

- Discuss what you think the story might be about.

- Check that your child knows where to start reading and the direction of the print across the page. (From left to right, top to bottom).

- Read the story to your child, encouraging them to join in with repeated patterns. For example: Page 1, "Biff went to the park". Page 2, "Mum went to the park".

- Give them lots of praise as they read with you.

- Encourage your child to recognise letters and rhymes.

- Demonstrate blending by saying the sounds c-a-t to read cat (Chewing gum them together).

Asking Questions 

- What do you think this story is going to be about?

- What do you think will happen next?

- How do you think the character is feeling?

- How would you feel if that happened to you?

- How do you think the story will end?
