Coram Beanstalk believes that when a child becomes a reader, they get the very best chance in life, and every child deserves that.
Each week, our trained volunteers deliver fun, interactive, reading experiences. They provide one to one support to children, who are behind, giving them the help and encouragement, they need to catch up – to switch onto reading, learn to read and become readers for life.
The role of a reading helper places you in the heart of primary school life. You’ll be leading reading sessions that bring a positive reading experience to children outside of the classroom. Children will benefit from someone giving them one-to-one attention, showing them how much fun reading can be and the purpose reading has in their lives.
You will build a positive learning relationship with individual children aged 4-11, maintaining a regular weekly commitment. This consistency will build confidence, improve their engagement with reading and allow their reading skills to rocket!
