Hello, Ex-KS2 teacher here but apologies for posting this as a parent rather than a teacher... My son is in Reception and doing really well but I’ve noticed his love of reading has begun to wane since moving from the phonics readers to ‘real’ books. He is allowed to go to Years 2&3 to choose reading books and the quality of the books and authors is great but he has lost all his enthusiasm to read at home. He can read most of the words but hasn’t got the focus or comprehension for these books I think. His language skills are pretty good though. So if you’re still reading, I’ve got two questions for you: 1 - can you suggest any books with a 7year reading age but 5 year focus and comprehension age? 2 - can you suggest any books I can read to him to help develop his reading comprehension? A lot of our books at home are preschool picture books that he knows inside out and has had for years eg Julia Donaldson. What’s a good next stage? Thanks in advance for any help you can give. I will speak to his teacher after the holidays about this but don’t want to be that pushy parent on the last day of term!
