Ms Fitzpatrick’s and Ms O Beirne’s classes have been doing some paired reading over the last few weeks and have really been enjoying it!Each pupil from 5th class is paired up with a pupil from 1st class and they take turns reading.
Paired reading gives both classes the opportunity to spend some extra time reading and practice our good reading skills.
There are lots of benefits for each partner! 1st class get to practice their reading, and also get to listen to a lovely story from 5th class. The 5th class pupils get to practice reading for an audience, so have to be sure to use their best reading voice to keep their listener interested!!
