‘The Power of Reading’ parent workshop was hugely well attended on Thursday morning. Our Y3 and Y4 parents were invited into school to be introduced to the Reciprocal Reading strategies used at BCS. The parents had an opportunity to make use of those strategies instantly after the presentation when they joined the children in the classrooms. It is always lovely to see so many engaged children reading with adults and working through the dialogue-based reading that we encourage. As l walked past a Y4 pupil who skipped out of her classroom, l asked if she had enjoyed herself; with a beaming smile she responded, “That was brilliant Mrs Ayub, l loved every minute of it!” What more could l ask for? For any parents who missed the presentation or those who would like a reminder, the presentation is available under the Parent Portal; Parent Letters; Prep (The Power of Reading Y3/Y4).
