Another pupil commented on how they are able to access the texts more in all lessons, “I understand what I am reading more now… and it has really helped me to improve my spelling.” As ever, we continue to have some converts to reading from those pupils who thought they didn’t like books. “Once I found a book I liked, I now know what I’m looking for when I choose a book. Sometimes I can read a book in one night if I enjoy it that much.”
As part of our reading for pleasure approach we have some pupils who read with university students. Hopefully they will enjoy it as much as the pupils did last year.
The English department is absolutely delighted at the number of pupils who are reading regularly and who have developed a real passion for reading.
