English Reading Pupils Conference 19th June and 1st October 2015
A Pupil Conference to support an English transition project (Year 5 to Year 6) was run on the 19th June 2015. 20 schools each sent 3 Year 5 pupils identified as high attainers in reading.
These pupils and teachers benefited from working together and planning English lessons on the text “Slog’s Dad” by David Almond, which will be taught at the end of Year 5 and the beginning of Year 6 in September 2015, with the 3 pupils becoming ‘reading ambassadors’ for the lessons taught in the new academic year.
They will return on October 1st to share the outcomes of the project and plan the next steps.
