Look who came to visit us this morning!
Meet our new Pets As Therapy dog , Ziggy.
Ziggy is going to be visiting our school regularly as part of the ‘Read2Dogs' scheme which is ran by the charity 'Pets As Therapy' (PAT). The children will be able to share books with him , a concept that has proven to increase a love of reading in many schools already. Today the children were able to meet Ziggy in their assemblies and learn about why he is going to be visiting our school.They also discussed how to behave around dogs and they were incredibly calm and sensible around him , which meant that Ziggy was very comfortable and relaxed during his visit (I think he almost fell asleep!).
Ziggy can’t wait to join the team!
