They are also pleased to announce…FRED is back! FRED stands for:

Families reading together is vital and has a significant positive effect on a child’s reading, cognitive skills, wellbeing and mental health. The purpose of this course is to develop learners’ understanding of the methods and steps used to teach children to read. Studies show there are lots of positive effects for children if family members read regularly to them, including better attendance at school; higher self-esteem and confidence; making friends and a higher likelihood of going on to higher education... and earning more as an adult!  

FRED starts, Tuesday 27th April, 10:00-12:00 (5x2hr sessions).
