To encourage our youngest children to start reading we held a Reading Workshop to support parents in Nursery and reception.

In this session we looked at:

• The importance of reading and developing a love of reading.
• The importance of storybooks and sharing stories with children.
• The importance of looking at pictures in stories and talking about. the pictures and what is happening and predicting what will happen in a story.
• The skills children need before they can begin to read words.
• How parents can use home readers and story sacks to support reading at home.
• Parents were also offered the opportunity to sign their child up to the local library.

Parents received information packs and questions card that could be used when reading with their child at home.
