Miss. Deans would like to thank all the parents for their support in attending the recent 'share a story' sessions and for their valuable feedback of the session. All the feedback was extremely positive with many of you wanting more of such sessions due to you enjoying it greatly.
Here are just a few of the many positive comments received:
... 'it wasn't just a story session, all the children were involved and they all enjoyed it' (Reception)
'It has inspired me to ask more questions when we read at home' (Parent Year 4)
'it helped me as a parent to see how to read stories at home with excitement and interest to our children'(Reception)
I think there should be more of these reading sessions... I really liked it' (Reception)
I feel these workshops and sessions are very beneficial to help parents to help their child as much as they can' (Year 3)
' nice to be longer' (Year 2)
'We read everyday but it has encouraged us to talk more in-depth about what we read' (Year 3)
'The most enjoyable thing was watching the anticipation of every single child during the story' (Reception)
Up coming share a story session:
Some parents even provided suggestions of how we could make the sessions even better. We have looked closely at these suggestions and used these to help us to plan the next share a story session in school which will be taking place in March. Keep an eye out for specific dates on the newsletter. Your child will also bring home with them an invitation to invite you to their sessions within the next couple of weeks!
Thanks again for your continue support,
