We welcomed Woody the reading dog back into school this afternoon.
He was very proud to award reading champion badges to children who were nominated for demonstrating a love of reading. Their job will be to promote and encourage reading across the school. We also had the Shropshire Star come into school to take photographs of the reading champions with Woody, so please look out for them in the newspaper in the coming days.
Woody had just enough time to listen to some readers in Class 4 and Class 5 this afternoon and was very sorry that he couldn’t get round to the other classes, He has, however, left a poster for every child in school, which has been ‘pawtographed’ by himself.
We will be welcoming Woody (and his owner, Anne) back into school during autumn term.
In the meantime, make sure you read at least 3 times a week!
