Children start their day with an additional reading session, in order to continue their learning and understanding of phonics, unfamiliar and exception words and to develop reading fluency.
Children work in a small group to support concentration levels and limit distractions. The smaller group environment helps children develop their skills without the added peer pressure; reducing anxieties.
Many children with English as an additional language (EAL) are invited to take part in reading intervention sessions. Here, smaller groups provide opportunities for greater support and access to essential phonics planning.
Weekly comprehension activities and Reciprocal reading sessions are differentiated to the abilities within the group and to develop greater cultural understanding through topic-based planning and texts.
Children have regular Reciprocal reading sessions, where they listen to more challenging texts being read to them, engaging in discussions about key features, key information and a wide variety of genre styles.
