Macclesfield Town Premier League Reading Stars

Macclesfield Town are happy to annouce that we have started to embark on our Premier League reading intervention sessions in schools in and around Macclesfield and the Cheshire East area. This will be the first time Macclesfield Town have embarked on the Premier League Reading Stars programme.

Premier League Reading Stars is an inspiring 10-session reading intervention created to increase engagement and progress levels in reading for Year 5 and 6. It is aimed at pupils who are underachieving in reading but who love and are motivated by football. Developed by the National Literacy Trust with teachers and authors to ensure it really works in schools, it supports the delivery of the statutory requirements for English Programme of Study in the English and Welsh curricula.

The Reading Stars sessions have been a massive success in our year 2 & 4 classes. The sessions have been delivered fantasticly by the coaches, they make it fun yet educational each week. We have seen an improvement with the childrens attitude and confidence towards reading over the last 10 weeks. I would recommend this to any school.
