Event Description
This course is for teaching assistants who are supporting the teaching of reading both in and outside of the classroom, working with individual pupils, small groups or within whole-class sessions.

It will deepen knowledge about how reading skills progress, and consider strategies for accelerating progress in reading.

During this one-day course, delegates will have the opportunity to extend their knowledge about the principles that underpin successful reading.

Delegates will explore ways of working with pupils and extending their word reading, comprehension and inferential skills. A range of practical activities will be shared and practised, which can be used with pupils across the primary phase.
