John Clifford Primary & Nursery School ‘Be your best. Celebrate success. Together we will be successful.’



  1. Spend time with your child talking, telling stories, singing and enjoying nursery rhymes
  2. Talk about the cover of the book - what could the book be about?
  3. Help your child to turn one page at a time
  4. Find a comfortable place to read and sit together. This helps them create a special feeling at reading time.
  5. Change your voice to match the characters in the book – make it fun!
  6. Talk about what might happen next in the story, what the characters are doing etc.
  7. Reread the book several times – every time you read it, your child will notice something new
  8. Go to the library regularly. Libraries are a wonderful place to find books and so much more.
