At Weelsby Academy we value our children’s ideas and feelings. As a school, we appreciate how much they want to move our school forward and their dedication in doing so. The pupils support the school by leading on areas that they feel passionate about. The team consists of children from KS1 and KS2 who all bring their own strengths and personalities to help run the school.
At Weelsby, each class has a selected reading ambassador who shares their love of reading and books with their fellow pupils. They have their very own briefcase, which is full of books, and they take this onto the playground at breaks and lunchtimes. Reading ambassadors ensure that their class book corner is kept tidy and contains a range of wonderful books. As part of their role, the reading ambassadors also read to a group of children everyday.
Our Reading Ambassadors are:
Year 1 – Paislee, Ryan
Year 2 – Taylor-Maii, Lenny
Year 3 – Nicoleta, Bobby
Year 4/5 – Crystal, Lola-Lou, Asha-Nai, Rhys, Ella, Blake
Year 6 – Maddison, Riley, Rebecca-Jayne
