#bedtimestories 2019

In Autumn 2019, as we started the new term with shifting our reading culture as our main focus, we launched our #bedtimestories project on social media. At first our members of staff modelled how they read bedtime stories at home, and not long after, videos from our families at home started flooding in! What a beautiful project; even Pie Corbett commented!
