Schools provide feedback on Foundation Reading Diaries
In early September Huddersfield Town Club Ambassador Andy Booth delivered 1,000 special Huddersfield Town Foundation reading diaries to an initial five primary schools in our heartland.
The HTAFC Foundation diaries allow pupils and parents to read together and track their progress, whilst including important messages communicated through football.
School children from Molgreen Primary School, Kirkheaton Primary School, Shepley Junior and Infant School, Honley Junior School and Christ Church Academy have received the reading diaries, which have been designed by Kid Premiership – a subsidiary of Club Partner One17 Design – and printed by Igloo Books, a fellow Club Partner.
Having used the diaries for over a month ‘Boothy’ visited Honley Junior School (pictured above) to talk to the pupils about how useful the diaries were as part of their school life.
“The pupils at Honley are enjoying using the diaries to help them plan and structure their learning. They have found them fun and enjoyable, but useful at the same time. They also gave us some ideas on how we can improve them for next term,” ‘Boothy’ told htafc.com.
Miss Goodall, Honley Junior School Head Teacher, commented:
“The younger children have responded better to the ‘cartoony pictures’, whereas the content around online safety is more appropriate to all ages and probably most of all for the older children.”
Shepley School told Town that: “Everyone likes them as they are brightly coloured fun and informative.”
If your child currently has one of the HTAFC Foundation reading diaries tweet us what they think of it to @htafcdotcom.
