Phonics and Reading Workshop for Parents

26th September 2017
Many parents and grandparents joined the children in our Reception Class and Pre-School this afternoon to learn more about phonics and reading.
They were welcomed by our Headteacher, Mrs Barnard-Taylor, before receiving an informative talk by Mrs Riches, our Reception teacher, about speaking and listening, phonics and the early stages of reading.
Everyone then joined in with a whole range of activities, within the Early Years Foundation Stage classrooms and outdoor learning environment, to aid development of phonics and the acquisition of early reading skills.  Parents and children were encouraged to try lots of the activities at home and were provided with information to take away.
" A great afternoon which provided lots of interesting ideas to try at home."
"An informative session which allowed me to see how my child learns their letter sounds and how to read through fun activities."
