From 10th-12th January, Dads had an opportunity to read with their children for 20 mins in School. There were three sessions before the start of school and two sessions before the end of the school day.

Miss Platt gave each Dad a reading pack with information on fun reading activities to use with their children.

A total of 10 Dads attended the reading sessions and one Dad came every morning to read with his girls!!!

It was great to see the Dads and their children reading together. It was clear that the Dads and their children really enjoyed the reading time.

Here are a few quotes from the Dads:

” This reading session is a good experience for myself and my daughter to read together.’

”I like the comfort zone of reading before going into class…”

”It was nice to read with my daughter at school.”

”She really enjoyed reading with me, just like what she does at home. I also enjoyed reading with her.”

We hope to conduct another Reading Week for Dads in the near future! Hopefully more Dads will be able to attend with their children.
