Pupils bring their favourite stories to life
‘Reading is like going on an adventure’
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.”
