Reading School have been supporting Year 6 learners at Ranikhet for over a year now. It is hard to capture the full extent of the positive impact that it is having. The boys are strong, positive male role models who are well educated, polite and eloquent which enables the Year 6 children to understand and talk more about their learning.
Through focussed 1:1 work, the Reading boys have helped develop our children’s fluency in reading, recall of key number facts as well as supporting learning and written work in English and Maths lessons.
The children are continually inspired and challenged by the boys which is evidenced through the high quality of the work they produce during their sessions. In addition, the Year 6 children’s learning behaviours have increased through seeing and working alongside older role models who are committed to their own education.Miss Ellison
