How to support your child  with reading in Year 2.

Please focus on the following areas when your child reads their school reading book to you.  You do not need to comment on each area, every time you read, but focus on a different area each time or comment if appropriate.

Useful comments could be:

  • Was able to predict what was going to happen next.
  • Noticed that the story was very similar to a book I have already read.
  • Explained what had happened in the story so far.
  • Was able to answer questions which needed reading between the lines (inference)



What to look for and comment on.

Fluency of Reading

How accurate is the reading.

Can the child read aloud words without overt sounding and blending.

Can the child sound out unfamiliar words.

Can the child check that what they have read makes sense and correct inaccurate readings.


Can the child explain what has happened so far in what they have read.


Can the child make a plausible prediction about what might happen on the basis of what has been read so far.

Making Links

Can the child make links between the book they are reading and other books they have read.

Answering questions.

Can the child answer simple factual questions about what they have read.

Can the child make inferences in order to answer questions.
