All Year 7 Tutor Groups are invited to visit the library during morning registration every Friday on a rota.

Bookworm Buddies

Year 7 students, who are finding reading difficult or who are not enjoying reading, are paired with an enthusiastic older reader. The aim is to help the younger student to:

  • Develop confidence and ability in reading skills
  • Choose books that they will enjoy and are suitable
  • Find meaning in the words they are reading
  • Recognise that reading skills are needed in everyday life e.g. signs, cereal boxes, posters and online.
  • Realise that reading is not intimidating or scary, but it something they do all the time and is both an important skills and an enjoyable pastime.

Year 7 students compile a Reading Log to record their reading and any tasks they complete. At the end of the Summer Term, all of the Year 7 and their buddies are awarded certificates to celebrate their achievements. For the mentors this means that they have demonstrated maturity, responsibility and have been supportive and inspirational to their younger reading partners.

Bookbuzz Scheme

This scheme ensures that all Year 7 students choose a book from a choice of 12 to keep in the first term. The aim of this is to:

  • Promote reading amongst younger students
  • Familiarise students with the Library, staff and proceedures for withdrawing books
  • Encourage students to discover new books and inspire future development within literacy
