Workshop 1: Reading (22/09/21)

Thank you to the parents and carers who were able to join us for the Year 6 introductory parents' and carers' meeting last week.


We host this meeting early to give you and your child the maximum time to put in place the routines and support needed for them to reach their potential in this important year. Changes made now can have a huge and positive impact on your child's year. We want all our pupils to feel happy and confident knowing they have had a successful final year at primary school before moving to their respective secondary schools. 


This year, we will be releasing a series of videos designed to give you an insight into what you can do to help support your child succeed this year. 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 will have on their long-term education. 


Please see the short reading videos below. 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 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. 


Thank you for your support in this important year.
