Our school, in cooperation with the Institute of Education, University of London, offers a Reading Programme called 'Reading Recovery' to selected children. The programme is designed to help KS1 children, in the early stages of learning, to read. Along with regular classroom instruction, these children receive individual reading and writing lessons for regular half hour sessions. Those children who attend will be able to take a 20 week course.
The teacher working with these children is specially trained in this programme which is based on observation and assessment, keeping close records and notes to inform the individually prepared next lesson.
We have successfully completed our first cycle of children in the Reading Programme and they all reached their targets and more! They have been amazing students achieving so much in just 20 weeks! Well done children- you know who you are.
