On Wednesday 6th June, we had a visit from Woody the reading dog. The aim of the visit was to encourage children to read for pleasure. Woody showed the children his DVD and his interview with Clare Balding at Crufts. He then visited all the classrooms, leaving a ‘pawtographed’ poster. The children now have an opportunity to earn (or win) a one-to-one reading session with Woody on his return visit in July.
The children can enter a competition to design the cover of their favourite book, or they can send in a photo of themselves being caught reading. In class, everyone is writing a story based on Woody’s adventures which can then be read to a friend.
Woody will be returning to school on Wednesday 18th July in the afternoon for his reading session and to award 2 children from each class as a reading champion.
