We are delighted to introduce support specifically focusing on Guided Reading in Reception. We developed the sessions:
- in response to popular demand for quality support in improving teaching and learning in Guided Reading in Reception
- to give a deepened understanding about how young children learn to read
- to discuss our experiences of implementation and the influence of principles of Reading Recovery on teaching and learning during Guided Reading that have impacted on progress
Trainees attend two half-day sessions.
