Every Friday from 8.50-9.10am in Nursery and Reception we invite parents to come into class and read with their child. This is a lovely opportunity for parents and children to relax and read picture books for pleasure. On the last session of each half term we use this time to share children’s learning journey in their Special Books.
Parental Engagement Workshops
At Randal Cremer we run workshops for EYFS parents every other Wednesday. We invite different members of staff and specialists from outside the school to speak to parents on a broad range of topics.
Previously we have had sessions on ‘Early Writing,’ ‘Supporting your child with Maths at home,’ and ‘Phonics support.’ We invited a nutritionist in to talk to parents about healthy eating and an Educational Psychologist to provide hints and tips for managing behaviour at home. We have just run our first Dad’s workshop which was a great success!
After the input from the workshop leader, we invite the children into the session to take part in some practical activities. This gives parents and carers the chance to experience our ethos of learning through play.
