Understanding the Reading Journey: Planning for Progression in Years 1-2 - Webinar

25th January, 2022 - 15:30 pm to 17:30 pm
Price: £50.00


Key Stage 1

This series of webinars will take participants through the CLPE Reading Scale, focussing on key attainment expectations for children at different ages and stages of development and will explore the practice and provision that will support children’s progress towards these goals.

All elements of the training are in line with the requirements of the new Reading Framework and the National Curriculum.

What will participants gain?

  • The knowledge, skills, attitudes and understanding involved in becoming a Developing Reader.
  • Texts and teaching approaches to best support these experiences
  • Contextualised teaching of phonics and word recognition.
  • Approaches to develop fluency and comprehension.
  • The knowledge, skills and understanding children will gain from these approaches.

All participants will also receive a free teaching plan for The Last Wolf as well as a free Take 5 Home Learning Resource example. 

This session, focussed on progress and provision for children in Years 1 and 2 will focus on the children’s developing confidence as readers, looking at the range of reading experiences that can be offered to children at this age and how these can be used to support children’s independence in word reading and comprehension.

Throughout the session we will:

  • Explore the kinds of texts that can support teachers to focus on key reading skills and strategies during reading aloud, shared reading, group reading, individual reading, independent reading and home/school reading, including how such texts can support the contextualised teaching of phonics and language development. 
  • Share a range of creative teaching approaches designed to develop fluency, reader response and comprehension, extending children’s knowledge about and understanding of what has been read.
  • Exemplify how to select texts to broaden the reading experiences of children in Years 1 and 2, growing their range and breadth of reading and supporting their growing independence as readers and preparing them for the transition to Key Stage 2.

As an NQT who has had their training curtailed due to the pandemic, I found it really interesting and helpful, because it showed a clear progression in reading and how it links with writing too. I loved the ideas!
