Read it now and read it loud

Pupils at a Northampton academy recently took part in Read Aloud, an annual celebration to mark the achievements of early readers who complete a Reading Recovery programme.

Organised by the Institute of Education’s Reading Recovery centre, it enables children to show their new reading abilities.

Pupils at Woodvale Primary Academy took part last week to celebrate the success of those who have overcome their difficulties to become better readers.

Principal Erica Holt said: “Staff and parents report that is wonderful to witness the children’s enjoyment of books grow and their skills develop in reading and writing.

“Not only is Reading Recovery a proven way of raising standards in reading, it is also an effective way to spend pupil premium money.”
