Redcar Academy are pleased to announce their involvement in the Pets as Therapy Read2Dogs programme. The first session successfully took place on September 16th and saw three, Year 8 students and three, Year 9 students, work with the specially trained handlers and dogs to improve their literacy.
Jake and Audrey, the canine couple, welcomed the opportunity to listen intently to the students read and whenever they looked a little confused the staff were quick to question the students allowing the dogs to keep up.
The programme aims to enhance not only the students’ love of reading but also to develop their literacy understanding and skills.
