Thanks to all staff and parents who attended the Reading Information Evening for Parents on Thursday 21st November. The evening started with a general presentation on the teaching of reading given by Mrs Wilde (The school's Literacy Leader) in the hall. This was followed up by a series of phase-related workshops, run by the teachers in their classrooms, as follows,
Each workshop looked at aspects of the teaching of reading at each age phase and each one was repeated four times, in the space of an hour, so that parents could attend all four workshops if they wished to do so.
The school was delighted at the turn-out (47 parents attended) and also at the very positive response from parents to the running of the event.
We received some generous comments, via e-mail the next morning.

" It feels nice to be involved in the children's learning and in the knowledge that the school encourages this parent, teacher, pupil relationship. It has also affirmed to me that the teachers we have at Cloverlea are dedicated to ensuring that each child reaches their full potential"
