Do something BIG for your weakest year 6 readers.
There's still time.
I was reluctant to allow That Reading Thing to be used in primary schools until a TRT tutor worked with a year 6 child and changed my mind completely. Here's what the deputy head had to say about the child who worked through TRT:
By the end of the programme he was working at age level for reading, writing and also for maths, because he could access test papers. He did incredibly well. The impact of That Reading Thing wasn’t isolated to reading and writing. It helped develop his learning overall.
What better gift to give a year 6 who struggles than going into 'big school' better able to cope with the curriculum?
It costs only £160 to train a staff member - great value even if you have just one child who will benefit.
