Reading Cafe

The Reading Cafe's in KS1 and KS2 in March were a huge success with a great turn out from parents to learn and share the joy of reading with their children.

Here are some of the comments made by parents at these events:

  • Excellent idea and lots of fun!
  • Was lovely to see year 6 reading to younger children.
  • We loved the Reading Cafe!
  • Would love to do it again.

The Otters and Hedgehogs enjoyed sharing the new reading scheme books with family and friends at the latest Reading Cafe in December. Several parents commented on how useful they found the information at the front of the book. There were also positive comments about how the new books are more appealing to boys and that the mix of fiction and non-fiction made it more interesting for all the children.

This has been a positive experience

Really enjoyed being able to take part in activities with my child. Having a theme was great and meant we got fully engaged in the story. Looking forward to the next one.
