Reading initiative at Wisbech school aims to encourage a love of books
Year 7 students at Thomas Clarkson Academy have been spending time reading to their older peers to help develop their vocabulary and foster a love of reading for pleasure.
The paired reading programme, which is a collaboration with Wisbech Reads, sees Year 7 students meet once a week with their Year 10 reading buddy during tutor time.
They are encouraged to record what books they have read, add their comments and write down the words they found particularly challenging. There are cinema vouchers on offer for those who make the most progress in their reading.
