Louis Carey and other Bristol sporting stars visit Orchard School to be reading role models for pupils
BRISTOL sports stars joined pupils at a Horfield school for a celebration of literacy.
The stars – from Bristol City FC, Bristol Rovers FC, Bristol Rugby, University of Bristol and Bath University – worked with boys from Orchard School, discussing the books they read and the value of literacy.
Teachers have developed different approaches to reading and writing which have seen the school exceed national literacy targets.
Head of English Kathleen Mc- Gillycuddy said: "We are a school that values reading. Role models from the world of sport seem to be a great way of fostering a love of reading."
