Working with Parents

Reading Cafe

Does this sound familiar? 'I don't know how to say this word', 'We don't read like that in school!' Don't worry, help is at hand. At Weeth Primary School we will be run a Reading Café. The aim of the Reading Cafe is to provide parents and carers with ideas of how to encourage children to not just read, but enjoy reading. Encouraging your child to read is one of the most important things you can do to help support your child's learning. At the cafe we will provide fun and exciting activities to demonstrate how reading can be interactive and fun!

Each session runs for an hour and begins with a free tea or coffee and cake or biscuits. During the hour you will get the opportunity to listen to a story read by one of the teachers and then complete a fun activity that relates to the story. We offer this opportunity to the parents and children in FS2 and Key Stage One to begin with and later this year will be launching it in Key Stage Two. If you have children in both key stages then don’t worry your older children can come along too!

We currently run our Reading Café on Mondays from 3-4pm.
If you have not yet had the opportunity to attend the Reading Café with your child please do so. Our sessions start again on November 6th at 3pm.
We look forward to seeing you there!

A big thank you to Cody's Dad for the delicious 'Blondies' this week and to his Mum for bringing them! This week we read 'The Way Back Home' by Oliver Jeffers and the children drew picture of aliens and scenes from the story. If you get a chance pop over to Cornwall College as they have n Oliver Jeffers exhibition running until the beginning of December for children aged 3-8 years. There will be no Reading Cafe next week because there is staff training.
