We want to encourage a genuine love of reading and believe that this will extend and stretch our children’s ability to learn across the whole curriculum. A love of books, words and reading for the simple pleasure of it, we believe, is vital for children to become life-long learners.
We have some fantastic opportunities for parents and carers to come into school weekly and enjoy reading with your child. Come and choose books from our extensive range and support your child in their reading journey.

An opportunity to observe our class Guided Reading sessions. This is an essential part of our children’s daily routine in school, which develops their reading skills and ability to access a range of texts aimed at their ability. Look at our books and ask members of the literacy leadership team any questions that you may have about their reading. We will also be providing tea, coffee and biscuits, where we will be able to have an informal chat with you about reading, how you feel we could support you better with reading at home and discuss any concerns you may have.
Phonics & Guided Reading workshops for F2 parents

We would like to invite F2 families to join your child for a ‘Phonics workshop’.
The aim of this session is for you to see how we are teaching your child the skills to be able to read so that you will be able to continue to support your child’s learning at home. At the end of the workshop you will be given a free pack of activities to take home.
