Are you looking for a chance to give back to your community? Do you ever miss reading children's books?
Help us support young Laidlaw Schools Trust children by building a digital library of narrated book fragments!
Here's how the project goes:
- You choose a book from the below lists of texts which we have available.
- We will send you a physical copy of the book (which you can keep).
- You can practice reading the text, then film yourself introducing the book and reading for around 5-10 minutes (please make sure that the audio recording is high quality).
- You will send us the recording, and the videos will be available for schoolchildren at Westgate Primary School in their weekly digital library session. The aim is to promote reading-for-pleasure books that the children can then borrow and continue reading for themselves!
If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details, specifying which of the below books you'd like to read!
