This CPD event will provide a thorough overview of the transformational teaching strategies used within the Herts for Learning Key Stage 2/3 Reading Fluency Project.
The project draws upon proven reading strategies to improve pupils’ trajectory towards the expected standard (EXS) in reading in Years 5, 6 and 7, including; modelling of fluent reading, echo reading, repeated re-reading, skilled questioning leading to deep discussion, selecting well-chosen texts and modelling of comprehension skills.
Project participant pupils have made an average of two years three months progress in their reading comprehension age following the eight-week intervention. Furthermore, pupils typically demonstrated the following changes in reading behaviour: increased stamina, improved reading accuracy, increased enjoyment of reading, heightened confidence and improved engagement with a range of reading material.
