Big read programme gets underway

Last Friday children from our primary schools gathered in the library at Evelyn Grace Academy to meet their year 12 reading mentors from EGA, choose from a wealth of books and get reading together! This is the start of our second Big Reading project where year 12s support year 4 and 5 students with their reading through weekly visits. It was apt that the event took place just after World Book Day. In fact Loughborough Primary School had just had a visit from David Walliams that morning! This year the project has been more popular than ever with 17 year 12 students volunteering to take part. The children were excited by the wealth of titles available in the library and look forward to some quality reading time together in the weeks to come.
