Books gifted to children at Thameside School by Sovereign Housing and Quest for Learning

Quest for Learning and Sovereign Housing Association were delighted to be involved in a wonderful celebration assembly, held at Thamside Primary School in Abingdon this week.

This was the culmination of a fantastic two year project between the school and the charity, funded by Sovereign's Communities Team.

Children from Years 3 and 4 have been working with tutors from Quest for Learning to complete their BookQuest reading programme.  Working in small groups, the children have explored how to respond to texts effectively, developed their comprehension skills through predicting, interpreting, evaluating, collaborating and, above all, have enjoyed reading a variety of exciting texts.  All of the children taking part in the project have made great progress, with some children making over two years progress in reading comprehension in just 18 sessions.

Thanks to the generosity of Sovereign, Quest for Learning has been able to work with twenty children at the school, raising their self-belief and confidence and instilling in them a lifelong love of reading.
