Reading Buddies for 2020
Reading Buddies is an initiative started several years ago in collaboration with Dartmouth Academy. Rotarians attend for a one hour session once a week and children from the lower school (up to year 6) read to a Rotarian for approximately 10 minutes; our role is to give them a one-to-one reading experience (which they may not get at home), help them with new/difficult words & punctuation and generally raise their confidence levels in reading books. We try and focus if possible on those pupils who need the most help.
The forcoming sessions will be:
- 8 January 2020
- 15 January 2020
- 22 January 2020
- 29 January 2020
- 5 February 2020
- 12 February 2020
Please note that the day has changed to Wednesday, NOT Tuesday anymore. Timing will be from 2 -3 pm. Although we did discuss a change of format we will continue with one-to-one reading next term, upstairs with years 4-6.
Any problems etc, please contact Trevor Pollard.
