for Rosslyn Reading Recovery Programme
Staff and pupils at Rosslyn Primary School were celebrating the success of their latest group of Reading Recovery pupils at a special assembly last week.
39 children were enrolled on the programme in September 2104, at that stage all reading level 1 books. Throughout the year they have worked hard with their ECaR teachers, Angela Hollick, Janice Bush and Rebecca Czabaniuk to achieve some excellent outcomes.
Over the course of 12-13 weeks all of the children spent an extra 2.5 hours/week reading in school. This was supplemented at home with extra reading. Parents were invited to attend a special meeting in school at the beginning of the programme to help them support their children.
All of the children had improved their reading, on average making 4.3 sub-levels progress. The children within this group advanced between 8 and 21 book levels.
“We are delighted with the results from this particularly large group of pupils. At the beginning of the programme the children find it very difficult, but their hard work and perseverance pays off as they have seen some significant improvements in reading ability.” – Rebecca Czabaniuk.
Rosslyn plan to continue with this programme, currently in its second year to support attainment in literacy. Huge congratulations to this fantastic team for their success and commitment to improving outcomes.
