Meet Biscuit and Bramble

Meet Biscuit and Bramble

Meet Biscuit and Bramble – Howard Junior School’s two new reading rabbits.

The fluffy friends have made their debut the school this week.

But they are more than just pets – they have been bought in to ‘listen’ to the pupils read.

Headteacher Gregory Hill explained: “This is something that has never been done before in this area.

“The children like reading to the book bunnies as they are very calm and patient.

“It’s a unique, exciting yet relaxing way for the children to read and the rabbits are so docile, they love to be read to. It’s a win-win situation.”

The rabbits are part of the school’s reward structure to encourage reading.
