READING – Year 2
Read Theory is free to use and offers levelled reading comprehension tasks. It is free to sign up and your child will then be asked to complete a pre-test to find the correct level for your child – please allow them to complete this by themselves so the texts selected will be appropriate for your child’s understanding. We would recommend completing at least 3 a week.
