The Children, Young People and Families Executive Leadership Team (ELT) take a lead in the National Year of Reading in Oldham
The Children, Young People and Families Executive Leadership Team (ELT) are taking some time out of ‘normal’ Council business to promote reading to Chadderton’s children.
Each member of ELT takes it in turns to make one visit each month over the 2008 National Year of Reading to all nursery, infant and primary schools in Chadderton and share a children’s book of their choice with the pupils.
Executive Director for Children, Young People and Families Janet Donaldson made her storytelling debut at Mills Hill Primary School on 21 April reading a book about dragons to a class of Year 4 pupils.
Janet said: “I really enjoyed sharing my love of reading with the pupils from Mills Hill Primary. The children were delightful and listened carefully and chatted to me about it afterwards. I can’t wait until it is my turn to read another story.”
