A quick hello to Miss Gell and everyone at Westglade Primary School for making me feel so welcome on Thursday. It was my second visit to Westglade; I visited Miss Gell’s Year Five class earlier in the year when they were participating in the Premier League Reading Stars scheme. This time I met the whole school and was so impressed by their enthusiasm for books and writing.
I actually sold out of books to sell; how tremendous is that? I don’t mean for me personally, although I was pretty chuffed about it, of course, but this pdf by the National Literacy Trust shows that children who build up their own collection of books are likely to enjoy reading more and have success in their studies. Westglade Primary, you are on the road to greatness!
