Nathaniel's book review!

Meet Nathaniel

We’re delighted to introduce one of our Reading Plus Champions, Year 6 pupil Nathaniel, from St Fidelis Catholic Primary School.

Nathaniel’s teacher, Annabel Phelan, nominated him for the role and shared with us:

“Nathaniel is a fantastic role model when it comes to using Reading Plus. Since starting in September, he has read the most words in his class at 67,722. He has improved his reading speed by an average of 35 words per minute and has gained an average of 1.7 levels.”

The Champions role

At Reading Solutions UK, we are devoted to accelerating reading progress while instilling a love for reading in our students. One way in which we do this is by appointing Reading Plus Champions who have the opportunity to complete additional exciting tasks, including:

  • Reviewing new (and unseen!) texts to be added to Reading Plus.
  • Sharing their experience of Reading Plus in a blog titled ‘My Reading Plus Journey’.
  • Collaborating with us on interviews with children’s authors.

Within Nathaniel’s Champion Kit he received a copy of Sky Hawk by Gill Lewis and we are delighted to publish his review!
