Year 2 Reading Cafe

Year 2 had their first Reading Cafe and invited their parents in to join them. The class teacher read the book 'A Squash and a Squeeze' to all of the children. The children were set different tasks to complete that were related to the book such as reading and sharing a book in the library, they also used straws, paper and cellotape to build a new house for the animals and they made a paper fortune teller using reading questions that were linked to the story.

Here is some of the feedback that we received from parents:

'Good to see what the children are learning at school. Good interaction between children and adults'

'The children seemed to enjoy time making things linked to the book with a member of their family'

'Enjoyed the three different activities and liked the fact that I could spend time in the library with my child, as I don't always get time afterschool'

'Nice to interact with my child at school an see the things she does in a school environment'
