The Reading Ambassadors are a group of Year 5 and Year 6 children who love reading and wanted to be pro-active in helping other children enjoy reading too. They applied for the role by producing posters of why they loved reading and a Year 6 child worked alongside the English team to choose the successful candidates.
The children produced their own action plan with a focus on reading for pleasure. They decided that they wanted to ensure the reading sheds were organised and updated, read to and hear children across the school read and run events such as a regular book swap and assemblies to promote reading and recommend books to children. They are also planning to take their love of reading into the wider community and read to adults in the local care home and to children in local nurseries.
