Year 5 have been lucky enough to receive the invaluable support of our local and much-loved FGR with reading this week.
Some of the academy players came to the classroom to listen to our year 5 children reading, which was both exciting and hugely beneficial for them all. It is great to have the support of the local football team as the children responded by really focusing on their reading ability and fluency. It is absolutely crucial to the academic development of all children to be reading their books from school, out loud, to not only build their ability in reading, but also to gain confidence.
Please ensure that your child(ren) are reading regularly at home to help support them academically, it really does make a huge difference to them.
I hope you enjoy some of the photos from our reading session. WW are hoping our FGR reading time will be a regular fixture (so to speak)!
