We are delighted that our website and resources have been helpful to Tetherdown Primary School, North London in their new reading workshops for parents. Reading Coordinator Meera Pow told us:
I used the presentation from the website and tweaked it slightly and then I showed them the website with an example book and activity page so they understood the layout. We gave the parents ideas of how to develop book talk with their children and questions to promote discussions and to develop the children’s opinions and preferences.’
Some of Lovemybooks favourite titles were introduced during the sessions including How to Hide a Lion, Superbat and Oliver’s Vegetables. Parents and children also took part in some story related activities including making Superbat finger puppets and lion masks.
‘The parents and children really enjoyed the workshops and many parents said it has given them a new way to approach story time with their children.’
