Bedtime Reading and Hot Chocolate evening - Tuesday 6th Nov 2018

We would like to thank all the parents/grandparents/other adults and children that attended our 'Bedtime Reading with Hot Chocolate' evening. We feel the evening was a great success and we hope that adults will share the information from the evening with their friends and family members. If you were unable to attend, but would like a resource pack, they are available from the school office.


Thank you once again, we hope you enjoyed it!

  • Very informative. Good resources.

  • Too clear that many parents aren’t interested.

  • Very insightful – I’m 13 and a reading mentor at high school with Year 7s.

  • Very interesting. Eye opening information shared.

  • My daughter often comes home with the same books. I am hoping that she will be asked to take home something different as I think she may be getting comfortable with familiar books and does not learn more.

  • Very interesting to hear about how children read.

  • Feel very informed and very impressed.

  • Idea: maybe more modern books and popular characters.

  • Idea: There are some good “story” reading apps for electronics. One I use with grandson is a Disney app. Just a though when books are not available. Also Borrow Box.



  • I just wanted to say a massive well done. The talk was simply inspirational and I truly believe you have made the parents think deeply about the importance of reading.
    Thomas and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  • Just to say that I'm sure you are quite tired after such a long day yesterday, but It was a great evening. The parents seemed very positive about everything.
