  • Reading for Pleasure Primary Liaison Project

    Published 23/01/19

    The English department is delighted to announce the first of several planned visits to our local Catholic Primary School to initiate this year’s current Reading for Pleasure project.  Following from a successful programme last year, nine students from Douay Martyrs (Years 8 and 9) accompanied teachers from the English department for the afternoon to read with students from Year 5. All the students involved were very excited to begin their shared reading of Louis Sachar’s Holes, taking turns to read out loud in their pairs. Our Douay leaders confidently prompted students to make predictions, discuss language and most importantly—shared their love of reading. Everyone involved is looking forward to the next visit!
