Paired reading is a programme for the boys in Room 15 and the boys in Room 4. We pair up with a boy in Room 4. The fifth class boys help and encourage the third class with their reading. Both classes are getting along very well with each other. The third class boys are improving at their reading every day and the fifth class boys really enjoy helping them along the way. It’s great seeing the third class improve their reading abilities and fluency each week with our continued support. Some 5th class boys are even learning from the 3rd class boys.

Third class is reading books such as David Walliams, Roddy Doyle and Roald Dahl. The third class boys are well able to say most words but if not the fifth class boys are there to help.

The programme started after the mid-term break and will continue until the Christmas break.
