Event Description
This one-day CPD event will offer an insight into the transformational teaching strategies used in the Herts for Learning Key Stage 2 Reading Fluency Project.

The project draws on proven reading strategies to improve pupils’ trajectory towards the Expected Standard (EXS) in reading in Year 6, including:

  • modelling of fluent reading

  • echo reading

  • repeated re-reading

  • skilled questioning leading to deep discussion

  • selection of well-chosen text

  • modelling of comprehension skill 

Previous project participant pupils made an average of 22 months progress in their reading comprehension age (PPG pupils made 29 months progress). 86% of eligible pupils made 7 months+ progress in their reading comprehension age and furthermore, following the eight-week project period, pupils typically demonstrated the following changes in reading behaviour including increased stamina, accuracy, enjoyment, confidence and engagement.
