On Friday evening, the excitement levels were at fever pitch in Year 2 as the boys awaited the arrival of their Dads for our annual "Lads and Dads, Books and Bushcraft event". The idea behind the event is to promote reading for pleasure by engaging with Dads (or Grandads, Uncles, cousins) to provide positive male reading role models with the home environment.

Once everyone had arrived and been served with a beer, we started the evening with an introduction from Mr Bushcraft aka Mr Leuzinger who set the lads and Dads a group challenge to create a shelter that would protect the whole group from rain and wind using a tarpaulin, some ropes and anything they could find in the school grounds! There were some ingenious creations and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and keep themselves safe and warm.  

Then the classes split with one group enjoying the delights hot dogs that had been cooked over the campfire (why does it always taste so much more delicious ??) whilst the other class enjoyed sharing some books with their Dads on the terrace and grounds. They switched over before we ended the evening with the traditional delicious campfire favourite : s'mores! Several Dads savoured this delicacy for the first time and everyone agreed it was a perfect way to round off our evening with sticky faces and smoky fingers and a desire to read more together!
