Reading Recovery


Welcome to Reading Recovery with Mrs Selby. 


Reading Recovery is a literacy programme designed for the lowest achieving children, aged around six, enabling them to reach age-expected levels within 20 weeks.


Reading Recovery involves a short series of daily one-to-one lessons for 30 minutes with a specially trained teacher. Each lesson is different for every child, starting from what the child knows and what they need to learn next. The focus of each lesson is to comprehend messages in reading and construct messages in writing.  Children learn how to use letter and word detail fluently without losing focus on meaning and comprehension.

Research shows that Reading Recovery achieves good results that are swift and long lasting.

If your child is involved in Reading Recovery, you are welcome to arrange to come and see a lesson in action to see just how well your child is doing.


My door is always open for anyone looking for advice on reading with their child, whatever the year group, so just pop in and ask!
