Today was a fantastic day for some of our MYsocial members. The very first day of the MYsocial Reading Club. In partnership with Bonneville Primary School in Clapham, MYsocial members met with a group of pupils and listened to them read. Well, at first they chatted and found out about the things they had in common. It turns out the age divide is not too large for Macaroni Cheese. A favourite all round.
Once introductions were done, it was down to the serious business, with MYsocial members encouraging pupils to read aloud to them.
It was a great first day. And very poignant that it happened on World Book Day. Both pupils and our members are already looking forward to next week.
As one member says, ” it was just wonderful. Spending time with children again brought back some joy that was hidden inside me, and brought back great memories, I’m really looking forward to helping them learn.”
Thanks to all the members who went along. Make sure you sign up if you want to get involved.
