It was good to see almost half the children in Year 1 represented by parents at this week’s Phonics Workshop for Year 1 parents. The Mums and Dads had the chance to see how phonics is taught, view resources and, most importantly, discuss how their children can be effectively supported at home. In response to your requests, we have arranged Phonics Demonstration Lessons to take place with our Year 1 children on Thursday 8 October at 9.10 am. These are intended exclusively for Year 1 parents. There is a Reading and Phonics Workshop for parents of children in Reception on Wednesday 30 September at 9.15 am, which will also be followed up with demo sessions. Please do your best to come.
