Herts for Learning KS2 Reading Fluency Project: implications for classroom practice (English) | Octavo Partnership

Course Date

17 Sep 2019 09:30 – 15:30


The project draws on proven reading strategies to improve pupils’ trajectory towards the Expected Standard (EXS) in reading in Year 6, including:
• modelling of fluent reading
• echo reading
• repeated re-reading
• skilled questioning leading to deep discussion
• selection of well-chosen texts
• modelling of comprehension skills

In addition to these strategies, a heavy emphasis is placed on the need for children to develop a ‘performance’ reading style which further embeds their newly formed habit of reading for meaning.


Previous project participant pupils made an average of 27 months progress in their reading comprehension age (PPG pupils made 31 months progress). 86% of eligible pupils made 6 months+ progress in their reading comprehension age.
Furthermore, following the eight-week project period, pupils typically demonstrated the following changes in reading behaviour:
• increased stamina,
• accuracy,
• enjoyment,
• confidence
• engagement.
