St Charles’ Pri­mary School pupils have had their heads stuck in a book thanks to a whole host of ex­cit­ing read­ing events.

Mark­ing Na­tional Book Week, the chil­dren have en­joyed com­ing to­gether and mak­ing read­ing fun for ev­ery­one.

The Pais­ley school en­joyed ses­sions with ther­a­pet, Wil­low the old English Sheep Dog, as well as a read­ing buddy event, pair­ing se­nior stu­dents with the in­fant school.

Most re­cently, the book­worms took part in Es­cape To Any­where with each class­room de­pict­ing a clas­sic chil­dren’s story.

Lit­er­acy co­or­di­na­tor, Court­ney West, told the Ex­press the ac­tiv­i­ties have been a huge suc­cess.

“Na­tional Book Week has been a re­minder for the pupils that read­ing is fun and like go­ing on an ad­ven­ture,” she said.

“There is dis­par­ity in lit­er­acy rates among chil­dren and events like these im­prove con­fi­dence and abil­ity lev­els.”
