Rocket Readers


A group of Year 9 boys recently led a 6 week reading project with Wrockwardine Wood Junior School. Rocket Readers was designed to help motivate and engage reluctant readers, focussing on year 5 boys. At the sessions the young students were allocated a year 9 mentor from TPS who travelled to WWJS each week to take part in the reading project. During the sessions, students would take part in listening, guided reading and other reading activities, with literacy based objectives to meet each week. All the students were presented with certificates to celebrate their hard work and achievement; it was a rewarding project for all those who took part. Well done boys.
