Used in over 200 schools Destination Reader can dramatically improve your children’s reading, whilst making sure no one child is left behind.
By developing a deeper understanding of what’s being read, Destination Reader actively engenders a love of reading which will endure throughout your children’s lives.
Introducing Destination Reader to your school will help your staff improve their effectiveness in the teaching of reading through the use of proven techniques involving language stems and other strategies.
Destination Reader has been developed by teachers, drawing on existing good practice and research. An approach rather than a scheme, Destination Reader fits right in with your school’s curriculum and favourite texts. The approach involves daily sessions incorporating whole class modelling, partner work and independent reading to deliver structured daily reading sessions at KS2. The programme encompasses the key principles of effective reading provision and fully meets the requirements of the National Curriculum.
Destination Reader includes the following elements:
- two days of core leadership training (two delegates per school)
- package of programme materials
- access to the Destination Reader online resources (for the school year of purchase)
- implementation support
Destination Reader schools are further supported through an annual subscription which ensures access to termly forums for sharing practice, updated materials and curriculum resources.
