After a big think over several weeks, we have decided to stop DEAR on Wednesday mornings. Instead, we are going to pair older and younger children up for ‘buddy reading’ sessions during the school day. We will also arrange some different sessions where parents and grandparents can come in and read with the class.
We are having a really big focus on reading this year and want to make sure every reading session is as valuable as possible, so we hope you understand our decision to have a change. If any of you would still like to help out during the week, we would love people to come in and listen to children read, so please ask in the office if you are able to do this.
Many thanks for your support.
