Project ID - TIS001091
Raising achievement in numeracy and literacy skills with P4-7 pupils. We are looking for two students to help give extra support to numeracy groups within P4-6 classes. We are also seeking one student to work with a P7 class to give the teacher extra support through both numeracy and literacy lessons. We hope this project will help the children build on skills and gain confidence in these areas. Guidance and support will be given by the school and teachers.
