5 Ways To Easily Support Your Child’s English and Literacy Skills 

  1. Listen to them read a chapter of a book or to their solo talk/presentation – give feedback
  2. Read a news article or watch the news together and talk about the ideas and language in it
  3. Ask them to write a page about something they have done that week and read it afterwards
  4. Tell them about what you have been recently reading and watching
  5. Create a story together

Here is a PowerPoint to help further, which is from the 2018 Parent Workshop about literacy.
