Reading with your child

On the 22nd March 2022 there was a meeting to support parents with reading at home.  The presentation and handout are below.

Parents' Handout

 

Reading Together

 Outside each of the Reception, Year One and Year Two classrooms are boxes of books for reading together.  We would like to encourage parents and children to choose a book together to take home and an adult to read this book to their child.  This is not about reading practise for your child; it is about enjoying a book together.  Watch the video below to hear Mrs Carter, our Deputy Head, explain how this works.  

 

Branching out
Once your child has discovered an author they love, it is a great idea to look out for similar authors and stories. Use these 'branching out' posters to inspire your child's reading.

Branching Out: Wimpy Kid

Branching Out: Tom Gates

Branching Out: Michael Morpurgo

Branching Out: Roald Dahl

Branching Out: Harry Potter

Branching Out: Beast Quest

Branching Out: David Walliams
