Group reading

RM Books Can Help Badge

What’s the issue?

Can all pupils be engaged in group reading?

  • One in five children fail to achieve the expected level at Key Stage 2. 
  • Ofsted look for successful implementation of effective whole school literacy policies. 
  • Schools must immerse children in a rich reading environment, exploring a wide range of quality texts to support both word recognition, comprehension and vocabulary development.
  • It is difficult for the whole class to be engaged in group reading activities even with a big book. 
  • Primary pupil numbers are set to increase by 18% in the next eight years making storage space a premium.
