Eight Year 7 students are currently participating in a reading initiative with a group of Year 6 pupils from Portway Junior School.
Over six sessions, Harrow Way students are guiding and supporting the Portway pupils, completing interesting tasks and activities to help improve the younger studentsâ€™ confidence in reading and literacy. Tasks include; paired reading, book discussions, reading to the Harrow Way Pre-School, a World Book Day task and a Manga book exercise.
As a means of promoting literacy at Key Stage 2/3 and reading for pleasure, participation in this type of event is shown to have a positive effect and significant impact upon members of the group involved.
