Seven Stories - Families Reading Together

 

Families Reading Together

Sharing books together can be magical! A positive family learning environment at home is key to children becoming successful learners in the future.  We invited Seven Stories in to school to work with 15 families to support them in making reading an enjoyable, integral part of their daily family lives. 

Families Reading Together is a programme of workshops in school combined with visits to Seven Stories for parents and carers, with some sessions including their children. The programme aims to raise the confidence of parents and carers in sharing books with their children and encourages them to bring reading for pleasure into the routine at home. Families discover the joy and pleasure of sharing high quality children's books together through this creative and active course that is accessible to all ages, generations and literacy levels.

This 5 week programme proved a great success with our families and we received very positive feedback.  We hope to run this course again next year.
