Reading Workshop 29/9/14 and 6/10/14

Reading skills are like building blocks. To learn to read well, children need the blocks of knowing the sounds of letters (phonics) and the blocks of knowing the meanings of words (vocabulary), word parts (grammatical markers) and groups of words (overall meaning). To build these foundations of reading, children need effective reading instruction.


Our two reading workshops were led by our Reading Recovery teacher. Focusing on the early stages of reading. Parents were able to see Mrs Luscombe modelling reading and teaching it to children.
Parents were keen to learn more about phonics, therefore we will hold a phonics workshop during the term.

Mrs Luscombe also shared the importance of understanding the reading (comprehension skills) here are some questions to support you at home.
