BR@P

Boosting reading logoAt Newbold and Tredington C of E Primary School, we are keen to promote reading skills. Our LSAs will soon be trained to carry out a BR@P (Boosting Reading at Primary) programme of intervention further develops the reading skills of pupils who have made a start at reading. Average progress is a gain of 9 months on a child’s reading age.

BR@P is a 10 week intervention delivered in 3 x 15/20 minute lessons per week by a trained LSA. The LSAs will be supervised and supported by the trained teacher coordinator, Miss Walsh.

Each lesson is structured into three parts:

  1. Familiar text reading
  2. Recently introduced text reading
  3. New text reading

The pupil will develop and broaden their use of independent reading strategies by focussing on a range of reading cues in the following three main groups:

  • visual cues (decoding)
  • contextual cues (meaning)
  • structural cues (grammatical, linguistic)

The development of reading comprehension skills is an alternative focus for this intervention. Pupils will develop a greater enjoyment of reading, improve their levels of self-confidence as a reader and be taught to use a range of self-correcting techniques.
