Year 3 and 4 Reading Workshops

On Monday 13th to Friday 17th February parents were invited into the academy for our Reading workshops. The teacher started the session by teaching parts of a Read Write Inc lesson and a reading lesson to the parents and children that attended. Parents then had the opportunity to sit with their child and use similar strategies to help them with their reading. At the end of the workshop the teacher highlighted key strategies that parents could use at home to help their child make progress in reading. Parents were also given an opportunity to ask their child’s class teacher any questions about what they already did at home. They could also ask about any further strategies that they wished to use with their child. The workshop was approximately one hour long and parents were given a pack of resources to use at home to support their child’s learning in reading.
