Reading Friends

What is Reading Friends?

Reading Friends is a paired reading project which involves adult volunteers giving up an hour of their time each week to read with pupils in Kirklees schools.


Thornhill Lees Infant and Nursery School are pleased to be involved in this project and are keen for parents and carers to be trained as reading friends, who can come into school and help our children with their reading. Children that have taken part in reading friends previously, have improved their reading age by up to 9 months over a 10 week programme. The children also become more confident readers.


To know more about reading friends at Thornhill Lees, please speak to Mrs McNulty.
