Thriving Readers is a highly successful reading intervention used at Knowsley Central School. It is aimed at increasing a pupil’s key word knowledge, developing their fluency and building their confidence.
It takes place three times a week on a 1-1 basis and each session is 20 minutes long. The whole programme lasts for ten weeks and the pupils are assessed at the beginning and again at the end of the intervention.
The pupils have the opportunity to play key word games, flashcard activities, as well as reading two books matched to their reading ability.
Pupils really enjoy Thriving Readers and it is a pleasure to see their reading ability and confidence grow throughout the intervention.
