Goldentime has been running in our school library for 2 years now, it is a special time when the children get a chance to play board games or card games, take part in outdoor photo challenges and just have fun with their class mates.
The children pick what they would like to do during their time in the library, they can draw or colour while chatting to friends, the parents that volunteer to help are on hand to get stuck in with the fun.
It is a child led activity, designed around the ideas of the children and constantly evolving. We are currently surveying the children to see how they would like to spend their goldentime.
The parents who volunteer for the hour get as much fun out of goldentime as the children do.
