In Sandford Primary we have recently started 'Digger's Book Club'. On a Thursday Mrs Griffin, the Learning Mentor from Winscombe Primary School, brings Digger the dog into Sandford to visit the children and listen to them read.
Digger has been specially trained to recognise certain commands; for example, if the children show Digger a card with the word "Sit" on it, Digger will sit!
The children in school have been very keen to get the chance to read with Digger and this has sparked renewed enthusiasm for reading. We are always on the lookout for parents/grandparents etc to come along and help listen to readers, so if you could spare any time during your week to help us with this, please let us know.
