Year 2 reading workshop
Thank you to all the parents who came along to the Year 2 reading workshop on Friday. Miss Williams presented a great workshop detailing all the ways in which parents could support their child at home with their reading. She then went on to talk through the expectations at the end of Key stage 1 in reading and parents were interested to see the level of reading and comprehension needed for the SATs papers. They then had an enjoyable time putting their skills to use as they sat and read with their own children.
Here are some of the comments from the afternoon:
‘I learned about all the different questions you can ask about what they are reading’
‘I learned how advanced the SATs papers were and the level young children are expected to read at’
‘I am going to ask more questions, slow reading down and make more time for discussion’
‘I am going to take time, especially at the weekend, to sit and read with them’
