Parent Reading Workshop

Thank you so much to all those parents who attended our parent reading workshop yesterday evening. We were delighted by your enthusiasm and keen interest to understand the reading process in greater detail, as well as the opportunities for us to work together effectively to support your children as developing readers and lifelong lovers of literature.


The presentation materials, including our 'Top Ten Tips' booklet and pull-out 'Asking Questions' section, are now available on the 'Parents' drop down menu. There is also a hard copy of these materials in the school office foyer leaflet stand. The video will be available in the next few days for those of you who were unable to attend the evening.


Please note that, while we have also provided a range of recommended reading lists in response to a request from several parents, these are merely suggestions made by one person and are not intended to be a definitive list. The age bands should also not restrict your book choices. You know your child best and these lists may well point you in the direction of a couple of new authors that you can explore together. 


Don't forget that we have a Scholastic Book Fair coming up during the week of November 9th, which will be open each day after school. The children will also have an opportunity to visit the Fair with their class during the school day.


Many thanks,


Sarah Stokes smiley
