Struggling readers and writers
Many pupils arrive in Year 3 with woefully inadequate literacy skills to cope with the demands of the Key Stage 2 curriculum. These pupils need a ‘back-to-basics’ revision of the core reading and spelling strategies set in the context of developing a deeper understanding of the pleasures and rewards of books.
This course covers:
☆ understanding the relationship between letters and sounds in the English language
☆ developing visualizing strategies for pupils to read and spell high frequency words
☆ how to hear children read diagnostically (and how to use that information effectively)
☆ how to give children the basics of sentence construction
