In the Autumn term we usually invite parents into school for a reading evening where we share how we teach reading here at Gretton School and highlight the ways in which you can support your child's reading at home.
This has not been possible this year due to Covid-19 restrictions so we are sending you the presentation in a video format with Mrs Knibbs speaking about the content.
Your child will bring home some reading resources to help you when supporting your child at home with their reading.
