Reading at home
Many thanks to all the parents who attended the Reading at Home meetings today. We really appreciate the support parents give to children in helping them with their reading and Miss Kynaston demonstrated how to make this process even more effective through careful questioning.
A copy of the questions shown during the meeting are listed below and can also be found under Curriculum / English.
Thank you very much to Miss Kynaston for leading the meetings in such an informative and entertaining manner. In addition, the school would like to thank the children who participated in the video sessions for their help.
