The Willows

I had a great time at The Willows School, Rotherham, on Friday. It's a special school in a village on the rural edges of the town.

They have an excellent reading culture:

* older children are reading buddies for younger kids
* they take part in lots of reading schemes and projects
* there are reading posters and displays throughout the school
* and, like many schools, they have a driven and passionate literacy co-ordinator

Also, they looked after me very well. Five cups of tea. A lovely lunch. And a lift to and from the station.

Thanks to The Willows!
