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
