Reading partnerships growing strong between Evelyn Grace Academy and Loughborough Primary

I was lucky enough to see first hand the year 12 Evelyn Grace Academy reading mentors working with Loughborough Primary young readers this week. Some really enthusiastic reading taking place, with lots of discussion on content and plot. This was the 3rd visit by 4 year 12 students to Loughborough Primary, as part of their 6th form enrichment activities. The children get a chance to read for a good 15 minutes to their year 12 mentor with time to discuss and record thoughts about their reading. It was a pleasure to see such enthusiasm for reading from both the younger and the older students.
