Reading scheme is the cat’s whiskers

AS AN audience they were just purr-fect...

The rescue cats sat on their mats for pupils from Queensgate Foundation Primary School, at East Cowes, to read to every tom, Manx and tabby of them.

The students visited the Cats Protection League, in Ryde, to deliver story time to an audience of feline friends.

If it sounds like a tall "tail", it actually was not.

The morning was designed to enhance children’s reading skills and confidence by encouraging them to read aloud.

There’s paws for thought.
