6th December Read Write Inc Workshop

Read, Write Inc. workshop for parents 6th December 2012

Helping your child to read.
Dear Parents/Guardians

Building on the continuing success of the Read, Write Inc programme and the well attended workshops in July and October; we would like to invite you to our latest reading workshop for parents. For those of you that were unable to attend our October session, we would like to provide an opportunity to attend an evening reading workshop in Burnaby Hall on Thursday 6th December from 6.30pm until 7.15pm.

At Walkley we share your desire for reading and writing to be at the centre of your child’s development, and our commitment to this continues with an opportunity for support and guidance on reading with your child at home.

You will be given guidance on do’s and don’ts for reading with your child, including:
·         Helping your child to decode (sound out) words using pure sounds.
·         Recognising words that will be hard to read (can’t be sounded out).
·         Choosing quality storybooks - How to paint a picture with words to enhance comprehension.
·         Where to find resources and support at home.

We believe this will be a really helpful and useful workshop that will arm you with the tools to support the way reading and writing is taught in school through the Read, Write Inc programme.

If you would like more information and advice on phonics before the workshop, visit the parent support website; Oxford Owl at
