Imagine a literacy resource which travels around, into the community, a welcoming environment for adults and children. This is the St Machar Reading Bus, brightly coloured and full of exciting literacy learning opportunities. The exterior is striking, decorated with art work by a child from a local school. Inside, the bus offers a large comfortable seating area for children, dedicated IT workstations, a collection of large puppets, an inviting one-to-one tutorial area and plenty of space for displays of literacy resources. There is an interactive whiteboard and a data projector and there are even plans to include a dance mat! There is information for adults who want to improve their own literacy skills and there are also facilities for making and enjoying a cup of tea.
