Reception class take part in latest Family Library session

Preparatory School parents got the opportunity to contribute to their child’s learning thanks to an ongoing initiative.

The latest Rydal Penrhos family library session took place on Wednesday, June 19, which involved parents aiding their child with reading for a half hour period before lessons and was held for those in Reception.

The scheme has been implemented with the aim of encouraging reading outside of classroom hours, in addition to improving speech in a relaxed environment.

Reception class pupils that did not have any parents in attendance also took part in the session, where they read some of their favourite novels to each other for a prolonged period.

Prep School staff organised the initiative at the start of 2017/18 academic year and it has received a hugely positive response since its inception.

Prep School Head Alison Hind, said: “Improving reading is something we highly encourage at any given opportunity here at Rydal Penrhos, and these family events give a chance for parents to get involved in their child’s learning from an early age.

“The sessions are a great way for parents to spend some quality time with their children before they head off to work or other commitments, and helping them with their reading is a critical part of their development.

“Hopefully the strength of these sessions will continue long into the future and I would like to thank those who came along and the staff who supported throughout.”
