Resources to support learning at home

These resources are for families to use at home. One file is for nursery/primary age, with some links relevant for babies/toddlers. Another is for secondary age. The third came from Peterhead ASL team who were happy for it to be shared. These resources will be helpful for bilingual families, but most will helpful for all families.

There are a range of activities with some links to translated information and resources that can help families.

Translated Book Detectives

Book Detectives – Arabic, Bulgarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, Spanish

These are translated tasks to support reading comprehension. If children are literate in first language they could read them to support their understanding of tasks.

Tip: To help learners understand the purpose for reading, set questions before reading the text to prevent decoding skills being solely used. Introduce question words gradually – Who? What? When? Where? Why? (Use Question Master – book detectives).
