Reading Workshop for Reception parents - September 2016

At the end of September 2016, we invited all of our Reception parents to a Reading workshop and at the end of the meeting, asked our parents to evaluate the session.  Thank you to all of our parents who attended and took the time to complete our evaluation.  

For your information, we asked parents to grade each question as a score from 1 - 5 with 1 being low/poor and 5 being high/excellent.

What went well for you in the workshop? What information was particularly useful and what did you get out of the session

  • All the information was useful.
  • How to help child learn at home the correct way – like they do at school.
  • The spectrum of questions.
  • Pronouncing letters.
  • It was all very helpful as the methods have changed so much since I taught my children to read over 20 years ago.  The phonics sounds were the most basic and useful.  Thank you for your guidance!
  • Great to understand how it is taught in class.
  • I feel I have a better understanding and feel this really will be fun to learn reading with the girls.
  • Sounding the letters.
  • All very informative.
  • Everything.
  • Learning the correct sounds for phonics.
  • The information on comprehension was useful as I don’t think there was such an emphasis on this when my daughter was in reception.
  • I have completely forgotten to ask questions about the books we read, will be starting again tonight.
  • Overall gives you a better understanding on how to help your child with reading and how to continue with the way they learn at school.
  • Good base of what’s going to be taught.
  • I had no prior knowledge so all very useful.
  • Good to understand phonics system and how it is used.
  • Comprehension aspects. Importance of fun reading.
  • General understanding of how the system works.
  • We have a few Jolly Phonic workbooks at home so it was great to know that we were on track.  It was great to get further information on how to pursue from basic phonics.
  • Interesting and informative, gave good understanding of how reading is now taught.
  • How to teach A-Z sounds.
  • Attended in 2014 when eldest child started in reception.  Felt quite confused by phonics/reading.  Feel more prepared following this presentation.  Different slides/handouts – much improved.  Thank you.
  • Knowing they are learning the different sounds of letters the correct way.
  • Refreshing on what I learnt previously.
  • All very informative but having just had a child in reception I was aware of most.
  • Videos were great and inspirational.  Relevant information about where to source support/information on the internet.
  • Presentation very useful

  • Well presented, lots of information, importance of reading.
  • Very informative.  Excellent overview.  Feel prepared to help Flora start reading!
  • The sounding of the letters.
  • Clear information (every single one).  Phonetic and how to pronounce that helps me a lot.
  • Workshop it is clear for me.  Very interesting.
  • All.
  • Ideas about finding any word in any book, helping child feel confident with any book.  Importance of sounds before writing.
  • Understanding phonics.
  • Phonics really interesting and signposting to Jolly Phonics and apps that are available.  Also clarification on when cursive writing starts.
  • Letter sounds interesting how you’re starting to teach them, enthused to read more.
  • I found it informative about where to find out information eg You tube – Jolly Phonics.

Is there anything you think we could improve? Any further information that you feel was missing?

  • Where to find/exchange books.
  • This 6 months ago; worried I’ve let Alfred down.
  • I would like a little advice on reading with two and trying to encourage both and involve both and not make one feel left out.
  • More paperwork and leaflets to understand things (ie tricky words).
  • More information what they will be doing in week, reading week plan.
  • No. It’s quite a lot of information to take in, but also to learn, but excited to talk to Olivia about it and hopefully to help in class.
  • It’s covered everything for me.
  • None.
  • Not at present.
  • No nothing.
  • This to be done earlier.
  • Nope! Was perfect.
  • How often to change books and where is the rainbow room?
  • If I’ll be confused with anything I’ll come and ask.
  • That was enough for today!  But really helpful for now.  Thank you.
