Early Reading - a progression from EY to KS1
Key Stage: Primary
Tutor(s): Gill McCleave
Who is it for?
English subject leaders, KS1 teachers
What are the benefits?
We all know how important it is that children learn to read. 'Phonics first and fast' has been a mantra for years now - and many more children now acquire word reading skills before the end of Year 1, making it much more likely that they will also meet the expected standard in reading by the end of Key Stage 1. But there is a big difference between decoding and reading - and there's a big difference in working at the expected standard at the end of KS1 and really being a reader.
This course aims to:
● Consider the importance of embedding a love of reading
● Explore the EYFS framework and KS1 national curriculum for reading - including, but not limited to, phonics
● Raise awareness of best practice and research in teaching early reading
● Support leaders and teachers to consider how best to structure the early reading curriculum to support progress - while engaged in the phonics programme and in the longer term
● Provide practical ideas and approaches to develop fluency and comprehension
● Provide an opportunity for leaders and teachers to reflect on current curriculum intent and implementation and consider where this may need to be adapted to support progression
