Not everyone has chances at home to read to their child, so this link has some great videos we have enjoyed in class of Michel Rosen reading some of his stories and poems with great expression!.
This youtube page also has many great books read aloud with wonderful fluency.

Reading is also vitally important at this early stage of KS2 as they are expected to be able to access the work independently which can become much harder if reading levels are not as high as they should be. Books are readily available in class and children are reminded to make sure they have fresh ones on Friday. In KS2, we work towards greater independence and children taking ownership of their learning (within reason of course!) as this greatly helps them higher up the school and with transitions to Secondary School in the future. They are all changing them in class and read independently everyday but 1:1 reading at home and practicing their fluency is hugely important.
Building wonderful classroom communities with parents, carers and pupils.
