Reading Teams Work!
Ever thought about how you could use Reading Teams training? At Buttershaw Business and Enterprise College in Bradford, Reading Matters trained their administration staff to become Reading Mentors. Two of them enjoyed working with their pupil reading partners so much, they switched careers and are now both Learning Support Assistants!
Reading Matters Fundraising Gala Dinner 7 March 2014
We are now taking online bookings for our 2nd fundraising Gala Dinner to be held on 7 March 2014. Our patron, the wonderful Ian McMillan, will again entertain us. Even bigger and better than last year, this celebration event will be held in the Princes Ballroom of The Midland Hotel, Bradford. Please reserve your tickets or contact us on 01274 692219.
This year’s event, on 1 March 2013 in the magnificent French Ballroom of The Midland, was a wonderful evening raising over £8000 for Reading Matters. Here’s to next year!
Reading Matters’ services really work. They improve reading for children and young people; enhancing reading comprehension, word recognition, language development, communication skills, confidence and self-esteem.
“I am really impressed with the quality of the training and support provided by Reading Matters. Our Reading Leaders have found that they are benefitting from the work alongside their partners. It is helping with self confidence and self esteem and the students are thriving on the responsibility that the role requires.”
