The Primary English Department have made the initiative of starting a “Reading Buddy” system

P1 students have been making a really big effort to continue with their learning Phonics and reading.

Because they are doing so well, they decided that they would like to share what they have learnt with others.

Some groups of P4 students decided to come and help them with their reading.

So now each P1 student has a “Reading Buddy” or “special friend” that they can read with.

Using their Oxford reading books, the students from P1 divide into 2 groups and go with their new “Reading Buddy” from P4.

The results have been amazing.

It has been so nice to hear them read in a loud voice and try really hard with their pronunciation.

The P4 students stay with them for a short time and guide them along, checking and helping them with any new words or difficult pronunciation.

At the end of the story, the P4 students ask some questions about the book the P1 students have just finished reading.

What great fun we all had reading together!

See you soon Reading Buddy!
