At Oxgang School and Support Service we realise the importance of reading to our pupils daily. Not only does it help with learning vocabulary but also with working memory and thinking skills. Our younger pupils are reading The Giggler Treatment by Roddy Doyle. It is a chapter book about little Gigglers who get revenge on adults every time they are mean to children. The pupils are reading in class every day and then talking about what has happened in the chapters they have read.
‘I like it because it is a funny book and I was laughing.’ – Airyn.
We are also demonstrating how we are responsible citizens by getting out and about to Bandeath Dog Shelter helping them walk all the dogs.
‘I like Coal, he is my favourite. He is called Coal because he is black.’ – Airyn.
We are really looking forward to our Christmas activities and hope to see you soon!
