A big thank you to all the staff and to the FoSM for making Bedtime Stories such an enjoyable evening for both the children and parents. The children were treated to stories and hot chocolate in their classrooms (teddies too!) whilst the parents listened to a talk about reading and vocabulary development and browsed the book fair in the hall. We are hoping that we will have made a good profit from the sale – we use all of the cash raised to replace books in the school library.

You can read the key slides from this presentation which explained both the importance of reading at home and examples of how best to support it.
