Meet Mina, age 12, our Star of the Month winner

Congratulations to Mina, age 12, from Mossbourne Community Academy, our latest Star of the Month winner.

Her teacher, Ayfer Yildirim, EAL Coordinator from Mossbourne Community Academy nominated Mina for her commitment, hard work and effort. She said:

“Mina is on task straight away when she comes into the class. Nearly all the time, she gets %80 of her answers correct from the day she started Reading plus. She’s never missed a lesson, apart from illness.”

Mina was awarded Star of the Month by Reading Solutions UK and received a trophy and £25 voucher to recognise her reading efforts.

Mina, who is in Year 8, tells us that she likes Reading Plus “because it helps me improve in English and is also very easy to use. The stories are interesting, and there are lots to choose from.”

Mossbourne Community Academy has been using Reading Plus since 2015. EAL Coordinator, Ayfer Yildirim, shared how our Reading Plus programme benefited the school.

She said: “I can see that the kids are really enjoying using Reading Plus and it’s great that they can choose their texts. The programme is very effective for students who struggle to focus.”
