Parent Workshop - Reading

This week we have run a parent workshop on supporting reading at home.

The subject lead shared information on the importance of reading and how we supporting reading across school including our school systematic, synthetic phonics approach via Twinkl phonics. We also spoke about how we support reading for pleasure and the importance of this alongside phonics and word reading.

We shared how small periods of time reading together at home can have a big impact on exposure to new words and some strategies for developing good reading habits at home, along with supporting children in accessing print on a day to day basis.

We shared ways to adapt reading for different ability children and signposted families to resources to support with this, before finishing the session sharing books and resources including the decodable books we use to support phonics, high quality fiction and non-fiction books we have in our school libraries, and information on how to access books at home including visiting community libraries and eBook resources.

It was wonderful to have families in school for this event and look forward to running future reading workshops.

We will be holding another parent workshop on Monday 13th May on supporting communication at home and hope to see more families then.

Great course, thanks!
