Reading Ambassadors

At Old Leake Primary Academy, two KS2 and one KS1 Reading Ambassadors from each class are chosen. Reading Ambassadors are chosen for their love of reading, their effort and resilience when it comes to reading and their willingness to share their passion and enthusiasm with others to promote reading throughout the school.

Reading ambassadors will be presented with a special badge. They will also meet three times a year to discuss ‘Reading’ in school.

Here are just a few roles of a Reading Ambassador:

· Part of the job of the reading ambassador is to encourage others in their class to read

· Share book reviews and recommendations with their class

· Complete library audits to find out what books, genres, dictionaries and thesauruses are needed to support reading and learning

· Help with Reading Events across the school.

· Help create displays to promote reading within school.

· The older Reading Ambassadors will read to other classes, mainly Key Stage 1, to help show what great reading role models they can look up to.

· Present the reading certificates and awards in Awards’ assembly
