This one-day CPD event will offer an insight into the transformational teaching strategies used in the Herts for Learning KS2 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 texts
• modelling of comprehension skills
In addition to these strategies, a heavy emphasis is placed on the need for children to develop a ‘performance’ reading style which further embeds their newly formed habit of reading for meaning.
