What are you reading this Festive Season?
Reading with your children leads to questions about the book and the content within.
It gives you a chance to speak about what is happening and use this as a learning experience.
There is nothing better seeing our children learn. Also, check out #extremereading.
Your input will make the difference! Read to succeed! Share you experiences with us on
Twitter: @CantrellPrimary We look forward to your posts. Thank-you.
READING HELP. Mums, Dads, Brothers, Sisters, Aunts, Uncles, Grandmas and Grandads - can you spare an hour in your day to come and read with children in school? We want to improve every child’s reading skills and really need people to read with our children on a regular basis, particularly in year 1 and year 2. If you can spare any time, please see your child’s teacher. We would truly appreciate your support.
