Paired Reading Programme 2023

20th Feb 2023

Monday 20th February marked the start of our annual Paired Reading Programme in Primary Four. Everyone was thrilled to choose a book from a wide variety of texts and get reading. The programme runs for six weeks; we encourage all pupils to read for five out of seven nights a week for approximately fifteen minutes (ten minutes reading, five minutes discussion).  


Please remember that pupils are able to take their online comprehension quiz in school or at home once they have read their paired reading book if they so wish - each book will boost their Accelerated Reading score and goes towards meeting their target!  


Past results have shown a marked improvement in reading if pupils consistently read for 10-15 minutes over the six-week period. We encourage all Primary Four pupils and parents to participate in this worthwhile reading programme. Happy Reading P4!
