Update on Read, Write, Count
For parents the prize is a personal Read, Write, Count Goodie bag filled with books, games and activities for all the family to enjoy.
The deadline to complete these is Tuesday 28 February. If you are a parent of a P2 or 3 child please also complete the parent survey too: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/FCP6MQN
Secondly, Scottish Government have asked me to pass on some information about their new parental involvement campaign, Future Me. Please see attached leaflet and details below.
Read, Write, Count’s new parental engagement campaign, ‘Future Me’ launches on 20th February. Future Me, as part of Read, Write, Count, asks parents and carers to talk to their children to discover what their children’s hopes and dreams are, to share those dreams on our Future Me wall and make a promise to do all they can to help their child realise their ambitions. It’s about what’s important to the children of Scotland, and parents making a commitment to help their child imagine a great future and live out those dreams. Future Me’s wall will preserve those dreams, and build a picture of Scotland’s children’s hopes and ambitions – a country that believes every child has the right to succeed, regardless of their circumstances.
A copy of the leaflet which will be delivered to schools during week commencing 20 February, is attached.
We feel that Future Me will help parents understand that learning together is useful and purposeful, we want them to feel positive, confident and optimistic about learning together and to engage in their children’s learning journey. By taking part in Future Me together families become closer, the child feels supported by their parent and the parent feels empowered to make a lasting difference to their child’s future, whatever they imagine that to be.
Lastly, thank you for all your support over the past year with the launch of Read, Write, Count. I look forward to working with you all again this year too!
