Year 10 coaching Year 7 in TextNow project
Here at the academy, we’ve just finished our 10 week run of one of our new literacy initiative.
‘TextNow’ involves Year 7 students improving and increasing their reading skills and abilities through a daily session of intensive, coached reading. But what makes the scheme so special is that our Year 10 students are the coaches. Their enthusiasm, dedication and patience has resulted in our Year 7 students making outstanding progress, with their reading ages increasing significantly. It’s also worth mentioning that the Year 7 students worked equally hard.
We’re really looking forward to our second cohort of students starting TextNow.
