Today the volunteer Y5 and Y6 Reading Rockets undertook a short training session to prepare them to meet their partners and have a bit of fun getting to know each other. It was wonderful to see everyone enjoying the prospect of some fun reading activities.
The Reading Rockets supports pupils from Year 5 and 6 to read with pupils from Year 2 and 3 to improve their literacy skills and develop a love of reading. They take the time to get to know their partners and help them to improve, not only reading skills, but confidence and self-esteem as well. The Reading Rockets are a great team and the scheme makes a big impact on the lives of everyone involved.
