Sticky busi­ness for teach­ers

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Letters And Opinion -

The half-term ended in a sticky sit­u­a­tion for three teach­ers at Can­ter­bury Pri­mary School.

Ben Hawkins, Craig May and Chris Kee found them­selves on the re­ceiv­ing end of a gung­ing from chil­dren cel­e­brat­ing their suc­cess in a read­ing challenge.

The ‘vic­tims’ were sub­jected to a dous­ing in cus­tard, por­ridge, jelly and An­gel De­light dur­ing the last as­sem­bly.

The gath­er­ing was also the chance for the pupils to see a ham­per of books they had won as part of the Buster’s Book Club home read­ing scheme, run by the KM Char­ity Team.

Teacher Emily Kelderis said: “We have a real mix­ture of chil­dren and we are do­ing every­thing we can to get them to read. I see chil­dren start­ing school and not hav­ing the con­fi­dence to pick up books - some of them don’t even speak English. But by the end of the year, I see them re­ally ex­celling with their read­ing.”
