Year 2 pupils from St Nicholas Primary School enjoyed a memorable trip to the Royal Liver Buildings today as part of National Share-A-Story Month (NSSM).
We joined staff from Boots Opticians who read stories to the children as part of their partnership with the National Literacy Trust to “raise literacy levels throughout the UK”.
The children enjoyed a reading of Scaredy Boo by Claire Freedman in the boardroom of the iconic building before taking turns to read to each other. The morning ended with more story time in front of the world famous Three Graces.
Kelly Clark from Boots Opticians, said: “The theme for the month is sharing a story in an unusual and safe place and we picked the magnificent Royal Liver Buildings for this event.
“The children have all read a story and then read to each other – they’ve had a ball!”
National Share-A-Story Month (NSSM) is an annual celebration of the power of storytelling and story sharing, providing a fantastic opportunity to “fulfil the core aim of bringing children and stories together”.
