Reading Recovery is uniquely responsive to specific needs of individual children, based on daily assessments. It is not an approach for all children, but an evidence-based, short term, 1 to 1 tutoring method for KS1 children exhibiting the most extreme difficulty in learning literacy skills.
Mrs Hudson is our trained Reading Recovery specialist at Monks Abbey.
It involves a short series of daily one-to-one lessons for 30 minutes with a specially trained teacher. Reading Recovery is different for every child, starting from what the child knows and what he/she needs to learn next.
The focus of each lesson is to comprehend messages in reading and construct messages in writing, learning how to use letter and word detail fluently without losing focus on meaning and comprehension.
Research shows that Reading Recovery achieves good results that are swift and long lasting.
