Reading buddies

24th October 2019
A group of our Year 6 children have been training to become reading buddies.
 
Angela Campbell, a member of our Local Advisory Board, taught the children some techniques to help others learn to read. She trained them in how to use phonics, how to help children sound the words out and how to give children time to think first, before helping them to read a word. 
 
Our reading buddies will be helping children from Year 1 and 2 to read after half term. We think the little ones will love having a buddy from Year 6 to share books with.
