This term sees the continuation of last term's successful Year 9 reading focus group, with both students and their family members working with staff, to accelerate not only their reading ages, but their confidence in reading over the coming months.
In Term 2 over 60% of the students who attended the group every week, alongside reading more regularly at home, increased their reading age by 7 months or more. A fantastic achievement for such a short time period.
This term students and their parents/ carers will be working again with the support of staff on areas such as effective questioning, sentence structures, elaboration activities and much more.
If any Year 9 parents/carers would like more information with regards to this focus group please do not hesitate to contact Miss Biggenden at firstname.lastname@example.org.
