Help children to find the fun in reading
On 16 March the Government announced plans to close all educational settings on Friday 20 March 2020, therefore, we sadly had to advise all of our volunteers to not attend their schools as usual. We had over hundred volunteers supporting children with their reading twice a week in schools across Berkshire
We know that as a charity we have challenging times ahead of us, and it is incredibly difficult to come to terms with the fact that our volunteers will not be able to deliver their usual one-to-one reading support in schools until further notice. However, we know that by coming together we have an opportunity to bring so much positivity to children through the wonderful world of books. We still need to help them develop sustainable reading habits. You can help us by recording live story telling, taking part in our Books Rock pebble painting, creating story sacks for when our services resume or become a trained reading mentor volunteer for the charity as we do expect the reading gap for some children will have widened.
