Reading Recovery

Reading Recovery is an early literacy intervention that helps children who may need extra support to achieve in literacy. It is usually for 6 year olds who need to make more progress in literacy. Reading Recovery provides one-on-one teaching in lessons that are specifically adapted to suit a child’s strengths and difficulties. The daily lessons are 30 minutes and cover reading and writing tasks. Reading Recovery is a valuable opportunity for students who need it, and so it is important that students who begin lessons are at school each day.

Feedback from students who have attended Reading Recovery lessons:

“I liked reading with the teacher. I got better with my reading.”
