What does a session look like?

Margot and Harris visit school once a week and the children meet them in a quiet room. They are supported by a member of school staff. The children share their books with Margot and Harris and then have a chat about the story and about things that have happened since they last met. Some children read individually, whilst others share a book with her in a small group. Margot and Harris also visit our Shooting Stars group and share storied with them.
