Year 4 Reading project with Year 10

27 Mar 2017

This half term 8 year 10 students  from Highams Park  have been helping year 4 pupils with their comprehension  skills for 30 minutes each Friday lunchtime.

The year 10s are using the reciprocal reading approach. They take the role of the leader and each week allocate specific roles to the younger readers in the group, such as Predictor, Summariser and Clarifier. Each group is reading a different fiction book and the year 10s are going to lead them through the book developing comprehension skills along the way.

It is hoped that this project as well as benefitting year 4 will instil in the year10s an understanding of the importance of reading for pleasure, an improved grasp of their own comprehension strategies as well as developing leadership skills.

This is a great idea.

I have been really pleased with the committment shown by our children in giving up part of their Friday lunchtime to read with the year 10s. Hopefully they are all enjoying taking part in the project.

Ethan has thoroughly enjoyed this. I have also noticed a renewed enthusiasm for his own writing (a debut novel in progress) and that he has taken his writing to the next level. This has been a fantastic opportunity. Thank you!
