Let’s read togetheradmin
Our paired reading at Malton School has begun. It is an opportunity for 25 year 7s to sit for 15 minutes, once a week and just read; aided by their selected sixth former. It is a way of helping younger students to develop their confidence and self-esteem both academically and personally. The students get a chance to choose a book they feel comfortable with reading and are able to read at their own pace with support from older students when they need it. It is not only an opportunity for students to improve their reading skills but it is also an opportunity for younger and older students to engage and build a relationship for them to feel that paired reading is a supportive and safe place.
