Each week this term we’ve been lucky enough to welcome 15 volunteers from Sky to come and support students on their literacy. The pilot was so successful that the volunteers are returning for another term from January and we are getting a similar numeracy project underway. One Sky volunteer said ”
We are obviously not trained English teachers, but I have noticed such an improvement in her confidence and also reading. She has learnt to take breaths and understand the flow of a sentence. I also think it has been great having someone to have one on one time with. She loves to chatter and responds well to my corrections and is so eager to learn more. I found this experience so rewarding.
