Story club pu
PJ party as reading group comes to end
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.”
