:: How to improve reading: inference, comprehension and fluency skills ::
"It is essential that, by the end of their primary education, all pupils are able to read fluently, and with confidence, in any subject in their forthcoming secondary education." (2014 National Curriculum). This course will support teachers in raising standards in reading comprehension from Year 1 to Year 6. We will consider what the barriers to reading comprehension are for some pupils, and develop delegates' understanding and knowledge around ways to improve reading outcomes. This course will help delegates to unpick the key skills involved in comprehending a range of texts, identifying effective teaching approaches to foster the required skills. We will draw on recent research and findings from the Education Endowment Foundation to help delegates stay up to date with proven strategies, including aspects of fluency, inference, retrieval and self-regulation. Across the day, we will share practical ideas to engage and excite pupils, enabling them to develop that "love of reading" (2014 National Curriculum) that will make it easier for them to become successful across a range of texts.
By attending the course, participants will:
  • deepen their knowledge and understanding of processes involved in reading comprehension
  • refine and broaden the range of teaching approaches to enable better reading
  • engage with a variety of texts across the day
  • take away practical strategies to use in school
  • consider best practice and application to their setting
Suitable for:
  • Classroom Teachers
