Reading with Parents-  Last year several parents kindly gave up their time to support students with their reading. It was very successful and greatly enjoyed by the students. The adults spent half an hour in school twice

a week. They worked with the same two students and spent 15 minutes sharing a book together.

If you are interested and could commit to two 30 minutes slots each week for a term please email or speak to Gemma (

Please indicate preferred days and time slots i.e every Tuesday and Friday at 9-9:30.

There would be an afternoon of informal training to share some Pause, Prompt, Praise techniques. This is simply to offer a few guidelines and answer any questions you may have. 

This invite is extended to grandparents, it would be awesome if Appleby School had a ‘Reading Gran or Grandpa’.
