Volunteer Reading Helper - Coram Beanstalk

11th November to 10th November
Coram Beanstalk believes that when a child becomes a reader, they get the very best chance in life, and every child deserves that.
This activity is brought to you by The Union in partnership with Manchester Community Central

We Work With Schools & Parents To Help Children Grow A Love For Reading!
Each week, across England, 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!   
How it works 
You will need to: 
• Attend school weekly in the afternoon session(s) during which you’ll see the same children each week 
• Independently lead your sessions; you’ll have access to our brilliant books, online portal and will quickly get into the swing of what works well for each child 
• Liaise with school staff and our team as required 
Apply now to register your interest and we can discuss it further.
