Usually at this point in the year, the Year 2 team would invite parents and carers into Freemantle for a series of workshops where we would discuss the year ahead and how you can support your child to achieve highly.
This year, due to Covid-19, we cannot currently do this, so instead we will be releasing a series of videos addressing the points we would normally discuss in these sessions. The first workshop video focuses on reading, which is the most important thing your child should be doing to help them have a successful year in school and reduce the impact the gap in their learning could have on their long-term education.
Please see the short reading video(s) below (coming soon!) The first will guide you through how to use Accelerated Reader, our new reading-support program that also ties into homework for this year, at home and how to access information about your child’s reading ability and progress. The second contains information about reading at Freemantle, homework this year and how you can support your child to maximise the reading they do at home so that they can enjoy the many benefits reading for pleasure has on their education. Both will help you to help your child do well in school this year.
