Books Not Bands, Reading / 30.07.2018

A guest post by Michael Tingey primary school teacher, deputy head and dad of 2. I’m not sure I have ever come across a toddler that doesn’t love books. They thrive under the positive attention they get from sitting and hearing stories with loved ones. These experiences provide them with moments of calm, times of great entertainment and opportunities to learn.

Bookshelves This bookshelf is me on so many levels.  It's all over the place and messy but there is so much joy right in there, you just have to start reading. For this first blog post I thought I would open up some of the books that make up my metaphorical book case and give you a glimpse of what makes me tick and why I am here.  Firstly, I am a reader, you have probably already worked that out, and I love digging into a good book.  I...
