Boosting Reading @Primary (BR@P) (2 days training for a TA & teacher together)

09:30 on 27 March 2018–15:00 on 17 April 2018

Boosting Reading @Primary is recognised as an effective intervention by the European Centre for Reading Recovery at the Institute of Education, University of London, and is included in Every Child a Reader.

BR@P supports the acquisition of good reading skills and is specifically designed to improve the way pupils read, enabling them to be independent problem-solvers who read with understanding and enjoyment.

BR@S is a 10-week intervention programme delivered one-to-one, by a trained adult three times a week. Each session lasts 15 minutes and includes:

  • Practicing independent reading skills on familiar texts
  • Ongoing assessment
  • Working on unfamiliar text with support, leading to independence and understanding

This training course is designed for Teachers and TAs and provides a good mix of teaching, discussion and activities to practice skills and develop understanding. The training and materials have been designed so that BR@P can be delivered confidently and easily by the trained adult. The programme also enhances their skills and confidence in supporting literacy effectively, in the classroom.
