This week we started our Paired Reading Programme between our Year 3 and Year 7 pupils. Year 3 children are paired with a Year 7 pupil for the duration of the programme and engage in three half-hour Paired Reading sessions per week, alongside their usual literacy and reading work.
With the support of their Year 7 partner, Year 3 pupils select their Paired Reading books from a stock of books especially selected for the programme. Indeed in the past our Paired Reading Programme has been shown to have had some excellent results for helping children to read, enjoy reading and developing a positive attitude to reading. We look forward to an enjoyable and successful programme this year!
