Woodcroft Primary School Father's Day Reading Scheme
"Thank you to all the dads, uncles or grandads who came into school last Thursday and Friday to read with their child. It was great to see a so many people attend.This was the first time we have organised such an event and we were amazed by the response.
Research tells us that the more time we spend reading with our children the better they will do at school. We all lead such busy and hectic lifestyles, but if we can set aside time to read with children then both adults and children can benefit.
The Fatherhood Institue last week launched 'Fathers story week' encouraging dads to read with their children. The website has information, resources and short video clips of people including celebrities reading stories. http://www.fatherhoodinstitute.org/tag/fathers-story-week/
We aim to involve parents in more reading projects over the coming year at Woodcroft Primary. In the meantime...keep reading!"
