NQT Reading

15 January 2019 @ 09:15 - 12:15
As a teacher you need to manage the teaching of reading and ensure that children are developing the key skills necessary to decode and understand a range of age appropriate texts.

Finding the best way to inspire children to become fluent readers has long been debated. The "look and say" approach, where children learnt to memorise words, dominated in the 1940s, 50s and 60s. But now the pendulum has swung towards phonics-based teaching, where children decode words by sounds. The DfE says international evidence demonstrates that phonics is the most effective way of teaching early reading, but using phonics alone does not develop all readers. So what is the best way to teach children how to read?

Delegates attending this course will

  • Look at a range of strategies to support their teaching of reading

  • Look at developing reading for purpose and pleasure, and how to introduce children to more challenging texts as well as focus on word reading skills.

  • Developing motivation to read, develop both the skill and the will.

  • We will also look at the CLPE Reading Scales
