Developing Early Readers across the Primary Years (Deepening Subject Knowledge in Reading)

28/02/2019 - 1:30pm to 4:00pm

Please note that this course has now passed. If you have any interest in a future Developing Early Readers across the Primary Years course, please email [email protected].

There will be children in all primary year groups who are early readers who may be struggling to progress in their reading journey. What are the approaches teachers should take and what key experiences should we plan for to develop their reading fluency whilst also ensuring they are engaged with and responsive to the texts they are offered? 

This course:

  • Focuses on developing early readers no matter their age
  • Explores what makes a high quality text for early readers of different ages
  • Supports practitioners to plan around such texts drawing out opportunities for the teaching of phonics and improving vocabulary knowledge
  • Develops strategies for increasing reading fluency and approaches to develop comprehension at all primary age groups

This course and CLPE's suite of half day programmes offer an excellent introduction into effective reading training, or an opportunity for teachers who have completed our Power of Reading training or other courses, to take a deeper look at specific reading skills and strategies. Our expert teachers will tailor the course to the needs of all participants, from NQTs to experienced teachers. These half day courses build on the research gleaned from our full course programme, deepening participants' knowledge of significant elements of the reading process.

This event is part of a series of half-day training events designed to provide subject knowledge in the key aspects of the effective teaching of reading. Each training event stands alone but together they provide a comprehensive understanding of the entire reading process.
