Parents of our Yr 1 pupils were invited to take part in our new weekly reading workshop. The parents are provided with guidance by class teachers with advice on how to help their child with reading and comprehending what they are reading. The parents are given the opportunity to sit with their child in school and practice reading strategies. Having tried this with our pupils and parents from the Reception classes we found that children gain confidence when reading to adults and their peers. We thank our teachers and assistants who are helping with this parent workshop.
