During tutor time, we have launched our exciting form time Reading Ahead programme! Reading a range of texts is important not only for students’ success in school but it has been proven to help their own personal development too. Students who read are often better at communicating as well as having a wider vocabulary.
Each term, students from Years 7-11 will spend part of form time reading a carefully selected novel with their form tutor. Tutors will read to students as well as question and encourage discussion around the key ideas and concepts that arise in the texts. Students will also receive a vocabulary book to note down any new or unfamiliar words that they encounter. This means by the time students leave school in Year 11 they will have read 15 extra novels.
If you would like to read along with students at home and discuss what they’re reading, these are the texts that students will follow:
