Reading Comprehension Strategies
ReadingWise is used to deliver rapid reading improvement for those with low literacy skills. For our pupils one session a week is allocated during tutorial sessions for this activity. However, for those with significantly low reading and literacy skills additional sessions will be arranged during tutorials, the school day and as part of our extra-curricular offer.

In addition to the above our pupils are given extracts to read during tutorial sessions from a range of both classic and modern authors. During these sessions pupils are encouraged to complete short activities which have been devised to support a love of reading and develop their understanding of text from different time periods and genres.
