Headteacher Sarah Shirras said: “These are a really high quality resource (worth a lot of money!) and are designed to make learning to read fun and accessible for all children. They are the sort of resource that can feel like a luxury to us at the best of times - including cuddly toys, puppets and a lovely hat as well as an extensive range of books and teachers' resources. These are the resources that particularly help children who find reading a challenge - they make it visual and fun. At the present time, with so many unknowns in our school community, we would not have been able to spend money on a resource like this. When children return to school, some will need a lot of support emotionally and with their reading - these will certainly help with that.”
