    January Workshops 'How to Help Reading and Writing at Home’ Year 1 – 5

    Talk for Reading 
    Thursday 17th January (8.30 am – 9:00 am)
    Sharing stories with your child is one of the most important and meaningful learning experiences that children can have at home. This workshop will provide practical suggestions and ideas to help you effectively develop a love of reading at home. 
     
     
    Talk for Writing Parent Workshop 
    Thursday 17th January (8.00 am – 8:30 am)
    Talk for Writing is powerful because it enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally before reading and analysing it and then writing their own version." Pie Corbett, founder Talk for Writing. Come and find out how we teach Talk for Writing at Brighton College from FS1 all the way through to Year 5 and see for yourself the huge impact it’s making on the children’s speaking and writing skills.
     
     
    February Workshops ‘Head, Shoulders, Fingers and Toes!’ – Year 1 – 5
