Reading Mentors go the extra mile
After working as Guided Reading Mentors for 3 terms, Year 10 students Jake Williams, G7 and Ellie Cooper, P7 have asked to stay on as Literacy Mentors. They are currently working with 7 other Year 10 students, focusing on the novel they are reading within their English lessons, to further explore characters and relate them to each other and the time period which set.
These two students have, in their own time, created powerpoints, worksheets and slideshows to encourage and engage these students. On top of all this they are looking at their work and giving written guidance on how they can improve.
We cannot praise their determination to aid other students enough, they are a credit to themselves, the school and indeed their family.
