World Book Day and Therapy dog

In the World Book Day we received a very special visit: Eric, a therapy dog provided by Nationwide.  Every primary class had the opportunity to interact with Eric by reading or playing. Therapy dogs encourage children to communicate and feel comfortable around the dog, after all a Therapy Dog is a good listener, never judges or criticizes but just wags his tail, giving a natural and simple opportunity to help students improve their literary skills and behaviour, a in a calm relaxed way by interacting with the dog. Also the most of students and teachers dressed as their favourite literary character.
