The Read, Write, Count campaign bags for Primary 2 and Primary 3 children will be distributed to schools in the autumn.
Free bags of carefully chosen books have been given to children from birth to Primary 1 for a number of years with Scottish Book Trust’s Bookbug programme. Since 2015, the Bookbug Primary 1 Family bags have also included writing and counting materials from the Read, Write, Count campaign.
This year, for the first time, children in Primary 2 and 3 will receive a Read, Write, Count bag. Read, Write, Count and Bookbug bags are also available in Gaelic.
The new Read, Write, Count bag will give parents and children everything they need to learn together at home: There will be books to read together and items to use for writing and counting games. There will also be a parents’ guide, giving tips and ideas for how to get the most out of the bag.
Schools are being encouraged to gift the bags to children during Book Week Scotland (21 – 27 November 2016).
