Manorfield Primary School

School Reading Volunteer Project 

We are very excited to be starting a new reading project at Manorfield Primary school in Tower Hamlets.

With the help of Near Neighbours and the Church Urban Fund we have been able to provide training and books to parent volunteers to assist with reading in the primary school.

We have been working with Anne Harding to help train up parent reading volunteers at the school to be able to help encourage more reading for pleasure.  An enthusiastic group of parent volunteers attended the initial training sessions talking about the importance of reading, tips and techniques that work when reading with children as well as some of the challenges that could be faced.

We look forward to the reading sessions getting started properly in the Autumn term and we will be following the project over the year to see how the reading volunteers and the children get on.
