Pupils pulled on their py­ja­mas and headed to class at night to be treated to a bed­time story.

Lit­tle book­worms at Tod­holm Pri­mary gath­ered for the last time as the par­ent and child read­ing ses­sions came to a close.

Ren­frew­shire li­brary staff and teach­ers were on hand to read some fan­tas­tic sto­ries to the pri­mary one pupils.

Af­ter­wards, they had some toast for sup­per and par­ents en­joyed a warm cuppa.

A to­tal of 34 fam­i­lies have taken part in the bed­time story club, which has been run­ning for the last six weeks, co­in­cid­ing with the pri­mary one kids’ first term.

The idea be­hind it is to help in­te­grate the new pupils, to raise at­tain­ment in lit­er­acy by en­cour­ag­ing read­ing from a young age and to get more par­ents read­ing to their kids at home.

Prin­ci­pal teacher Claire Hall said the club, which ran on Mon­days from 6pm to 7pm, was a great suc­cess.

She told: “There has been a lovely at­mos­phere each week.

“It’s nice to see the par­ents and chil­dren mak­ing friends and ev­ery­one com­ing to­gether.

“It’s great to see the kids read­ing more and I hope par­ents will con­tinue to read to them as part of their bed­time rou­tine.”
