We would like to thank you for coming tonight.
We hope you that you will find the information helpful in our partnership to teach your child to read.
They will be carefully structured tasks and activities to promote all the literacy skills and will challenge children at their level of development. It may be phonic work, grammar, comprehension skills, alphabet work etc.
Your children’s teachers will have given you a day to bring in their books. This is so we can allocate an appropriate amount of time to hear your child read. Reading is undertaken individually or in groups – whichever is appropriate to your child’s stage of development.
Please do not be concerned if your child is on a different book or level to another child in the same class. It’s not a competition. It is just the stage of development your child is at.
Each week they will read in a team. It will be a book they have never seen before. Each week will be different and the book will be chosen to promote a particular skill. Sometimes it will be fiction, at other times a poetry book or a play and we also include non fiction.
Our aim is to foster a life long love of reading.
Suggestions when hearing children read.
Ensure your child is comfortably seated and always adopt an encouraging tone of voice.
Suggestions for unfamiliar words.

These words are the building blocks of reading and the children will be much more confident as soon as they learn them.
Thank you for your support. It is really appreciated!
