Year 5 Reading parent workshop and book tasting session
On Friday 25th March, Year 5 parents and carers were invited into school for a Reading workshop and book tasting session. Mrs Groves provided lots of information on the Year 5 requirements for Reading in the National Curriculum and how we are meeting those criteria in school and what parents can do to support their child at home. Parents were given a Reading bookmark detailing lots of questions and prompts parents can use when hearing their child read at home as well as detailed handout with information ranging from lots of tips on book recommendations to the requirements for SATs at the end of Year 6. If any parents were unable to make the workshop and would like the handout and Reading bookmark, please see Mrs Groves or Mrs Kirk.
The second part of the morning was devoted to 'book tasting' where the children got to share a range of books of different genres with their adults, obviously accompanied by squash and biscuits!
