It is hugely beneficial for the children to read regularly. Varying the way reading happens can help to keep it interesting.
For all ages of children, it is still valuable to sometimes have a story read to them as they can experience a more proficient reader's use of expression, intonation and pace.
Listening to your child reading is also important, as it provides opportunity to consolidate the reading of familiar words, whilst also decoding new words and sentence structures with adult support.
Discussing the books content is an essential part of reading as this supports the development of the child's comprehension skills, whilst also helping them to start formulating their own opinions about what they read.
You should have now received your child's personalised High Frequency Word list, which shows the key vocabulary that they need to practise. At the same time, it can be useful to check in with some of the other words on the list of HfWs to consolidate and rehearse these spellings too. Further resources to support this can be found at http://www.raglanciwvcprimary.co.uk/english-resources/
