Oldcastle Primary pupils have MP as Guest Reader 

Bridgend MP Madeleine Moon was invited to be guest reader at the Reading Café morning at Oldcastle Primary School last week.

The Reading Café is an initiative run by Bridgend County Borough Council Family Engagement Officer at several Schools across the Borough. Parents of children in the reception class are invited into School to listen to a story with their child and then they carry out a related craft activity together.

Madeleine said:

"What a pleasure to read a story to a dozen reception children with their parents at Oldcastle. The children gathered around and were very involved in the story of Mr Gumpy’s Motor Car which was a great success. They all enjoyed the story especially when one child was appointed Mr Gumpy to drive the car and all the others climbed into the car to have a ride, hypothetically of course!  Chaos and much laughter ensued.

"The Reading Café morning was well attended with parents and grandparents with their children, chatting and having coffee and then enjoying the activity after.  I met and talked with everyone after and was impressed with their joint activity drawings.

"Following the story I had a tour of the School and their new extension with Jeremy Thompson the Head teacher and Sue Prosser Deputy Head.  Around the School I listened to some pupils learning to speak welsh and met with pupils in their IT suite who were researching the Victoria Cross, the highest military decoration for valour in the face of the enemy.  On leaving I gave the pupils a task to research how many Victoria Crosses have been awarded to people around Bridgend and across Wales and to let me know what they find out."
