About the Webinar

Webinar Duration: 42 minutes (approx).

This webinar will equip headteachers, curriculum leaders, subject leaders, teachers and teaching assistants with evidence-based pedagogical techniques and resources to help primary school pupils achieve the required standard in reading comprehension as a foundation for success at secondary school.

The transition from Years 6 to 7 represents a step change in children’s academic development, as they embark on in-depth study of an array of secondary curriculum subjects. Whilst most children will have acquired necessary reading and comprehension skills, for others, difficulties in these areas can pose a barrier to learning. Disruption to education this academic year will have only served to widen the reading gap, particularly for disadvantaged pupils, including those with SEND and EAL.

In this webinar, Emma Rogers, experienced literacy and learning expert, senior lecturer, English lead and former teacher, defines the required standard of reading comprehension for pupils transitioning to secondary school and identifies best practice and resources which schools can draw upon in key stage 2 to support reading comprehension.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the expected standard in reading comprehension that pupils should achieve in order to be able to access secondary curriculum subjects fully.

  • Appreciating the particular demands of secondary curriculum subjects, including the need for disciplinary literacy, ie understanding how language is used in each subject.

  • Gaining familiarity with a range of pedagogical practices which can be used to enhance reading comprehension at key stage 2.

  • Recognising the importance of adapting interventions to meet the individual needs of disadvantaged learners, including those with SEND and using EAL.

  • Identifying a range of resources and further information to support the development of an effective reading comprehension strategy.
