Last Friday, I took a morning out of my busy schedule to talk to the children of Filby Primary School about my love and passion for reading as part of World Book Day. I met with a large group of pupils all dressed as characters from their favourite books. I spoke to them about my love of reading and had the oportunity to read them some stories.
I read the pupils a range of stories including “Captain Flynn and the Pirate Dinosaurs” and “Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Big Adventure.“ I have consistently maintained that it is important that a young age education should be focused key skills such as literacy. As such I was delighted to play his part in encouraging children to read.
I have always loved reading, and I was lucky that I was encouraged at a young age to read by my family and teachers. I really enjoyed this opportunity to read to the pupils at Filby Primary. I especially enjoyed the part where Sir Charlie Stinky Socks, defeated the dragon! The pupils were fantastically well behaved and were a real credit to their parents and teachers.
