GUCS Story Cafe

Story Cafe Logo

The GUCS Story Cafe is an opportunity for parents and carers to spend time with their child in school enjoying books and reading together. The benefits of reading and being read aloud to are huge for children, and, as a school, we aim to foster a love of reading in all children who come to our school.

Year 2 Story Café – Friday 24th March

The GUCS Story Café for will be running for Year 2 children and parents. All parents and carers from Year 2 are invited into school to enjoy a morning of books and reading with their children between 9.00am and 10.00am in the Lily Pad Cafe. Please let the school office know if you plan to attend.

Year 1 Story Café – Friday 10th March

There was another great turn out to our second Story Cafe of the term. Both the Year 1 children and parents really enjoyed themselves and had a wonderful time sharing books and stories together.

Here is what some of the parents had to say:

“It was a really relaxed atmosphere and great to spend time with the children reading without any distractions.”

“I really enjoyed spending time reading with the children.”

“Great to have some quality time reading with my child in a lovely, relaxing environment.”

Year R Story Café – Friday 3rd March

Thank you to all the parents from Reception that attended our first GUCS Story Café. There was a really good turn out and both the children and parents really enjoyed the time together in school sharing the pleasure of books and reading together. We had some really positive feedback from the parents and children, as well as some great suggestions for how to improve it next time. I would also like to say a big thank you to the FroGs who provided hot chocolate and refreshments.

Here is what the children had to say:

“It was good that everyone got to read stories with their parents.”

“I loved it. I loved the books and the hot chocolate.”

“I liked reading with my family.”

“I liked ‘Oi Frog’ as it was really funny.”
