My child been chosen for Reading Recovery. What does this mean?
Your child's teachers think that getting a little extra help will make sure that your child doesn't start to fall behind with reading and writing. Getting that help to them now will make a big difference, especially if they have been worried or unhappy about reading and writing.
The Reading Recovery teacher has had special training. They will work with your child in short lessons, one to one, every day for about two terms. In that time you should see your child's reading and writing improve very quickly. This will also help their confidence and their work in the classroom.
My child's school has a Reading Recovery teacher but my child is having different support
Reading Recovery is for the lowest attaining Year 1 and Year 2 children. Not all Year 1 and Year 2 children will need an intensive level of support. Your child's teacher will have assessed your child's needs and matched him/her to the level of support necessary to help.
If you are concerned with your child's level of progress in Key Stage 1, please speak to your child's class teacher who can talk to the Reading Recovery teacher.
My child's school does not have a Reading Recovery teacher
Not all schools have Reading Recovery; however they will have other literacy interventions in place. Talk to the school about what help they can give your child. We would be happy to talk to your school to see if we can help.
