Reading stories is fun for everyone

Reading a story together is a great way to spend time. Children love it when you point out things in the pictures, talk about the different characters in the story and read the words together. And a story at bedtime is always a great way to get them settled down for the night.

Handy tips

Writing a list can be a great way for kids to use their imagination. Ask your child what they’d pack if they were going into the jungle? What might they find there, and would they need to include any special items?

When you’ve finished reading a story, ask your child to write or draw a new story about their favourite character in the book.

Next time you’re in a shop, get your child to look for prices and check how much different things cost. You could turn it into a bit of a treasure hunt, and look for items that cost more than and less than £1. Or look for any item that costs £2 exactly. If something is on offer – 2 for £1, say – you could help your child work out what each individual item costs.
