Reading Friends of Lydgate

Currently we have parents who are training to become volunteers to support reading in our school.  Training is free and is completed over 4 weeks. Volunteers commit to a flexible reading time which works around them.

If you are interested please contact Mrs Westbury



Dear Parents/ Carers

We appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning at home is not going to be easy however we have prepared some support and resourcing for the teaching and enjoyment in reading both independently and with adult support.

Have a look at the videos below or follow the step instructions and get reading!

If you need extra help just email me....
