6 specially selected Year 9 students came along to the Summer Supported Read at the Leiceser Racecourse yesterday to buddy up with Year 6 pupils to take part in several reading themed activities. The day was supported by a number of highly inspirational authors who each became team captains for the day.
Throughout the day the Year 6 pupils were supported by their buddies through a range of activities along with including choosing 6 books that they then receive over the summer break to maintain good reading habits.
Our Year 9 students were fantastic reading role models, they all did an amazing job in supporting their Year 6 buddy and making them feel welcome. Well done.
