Y6 Reading Revision – November 19
As a new to Y6 teacher this course gave lots of practical ideas to allow children to revise reading skills in a fun and meaningful way not just pass tests. Brilliant session and the shared knowledge really supported the session. Lots of time to reflect and talk. Lots of real learning ideas. Thank you Christine, your knowledge is inspiring.
