Learning Outcome 4 Assessment Criteria 4.4, 4.2, 4.3

I had the chance to read as part of a group......4 children sat around the table within class....this was my dedicated table to assist and concentrate on.

Reading in these groups teaches the children to take turns, listen, offer support to one another, share views, stretch their imagination and raise their self-esteem.
