Leabhair Power – Our Reading Initiative.

This year we have continued paired reading sessions with pupils, using the skills and expertise of some of our former parents from our school community. Our team of parents, work with Ms. Shelly, Ms. Murray and the S.E.T. team to deliver a twice weekly paired reading session. Thanks to our committed former parents we have been able to support and encourage an even greater number of children.

Paired Reading is a research based technique that develops and supports reading fluency in a child. The adult reads with the child and listens to and encourages the child to read independently supplying help as necessary. They may turn take if necessary as reading aloud can be tiring at times. The result is that not only will the pupil’s reading improve but also their self-esteem.
