Duncan Forbes Reading Project

This term, the Library and English Department have been taking a small group of now S4 pupils out to Duncan Forbes Primary to read with P3 pupils as part of a reading initiative. It has been wonderful to see the relationships develop between the two year groups through reading together.  Here is some feedback from the pupils involved: “It was a great opportunity to be able to take part in the project. For 7 weeks we walked down to Duncan Forbes Primary School and we were all assigned a ‘reading buddy’ who we read with each week. I really enjoyed being able to read the books alongside them, and to be able to help them with using various reading techniques, such as fluency and pronunciation. I also really enjoyed being able to create a bond between myself and the Primary 3 I was reading with”.
