Reading Together

Our Year 8 pupils have been paired up with Year 3 to encourage reading for meaning.

The Year 8 pupils listen to the younger children read once a week, ask them questions, and log their progress in their reading record. This shared reading is valuable not only for the younger pupils, who love reading to the Year 8s on Thursday mornings, but also for the older pupils, who have to think of challenging questions to ask the Year 3s as well as encouraging them to read accurately and thoughtfully.

It is lovely to see them reading so well together.
