Welcome to the literacy cafe!
What is the literacy cafe?
This is a reading club for parents/carers/family members of pupils in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. It takes place every Monday afternoon, 2.30-3.30 with Mrs Thomas in the Learning Resource Centre.
How does this look?
The first 15 minutes is devoted to discussing literacy tips and tricks, this takes place with the grown ups only. The pupils are then collected from class and share book/s with their grown up. A Big Book is read to the group by Mrs Thomas and questions about the book are asked to the children. Accompanying activities and worksheets are then provided for you to either start in the literacy cafe or to enhance any further learning that you might like to undertake at home.
Please contact Mrs Thomas for more information.
