What is Reading Plus?
Reading Plus is a web-based program that builds upon the foundational skills of phonics and phonemic awareness to develop reading with metacognition – reading for meaning.
Aimed at pupils in KS2 and above, Reading Plus has a readability range from Y2 to beyond GCSE. Using a unique Guided Window system, Reading Plus accelerates silent reading speed and increases pupil’s stamina. Whilst often overlooked, reading fluency is an essential component for developing confident, motivated, and engaged readers.
The program combines a wide variety of age-appropriate texts with rigorous questioning designed to challenge a pupil’s deeper understanding. This, together with vocabulary exercises, builds a stronger foundation for reading comprehension.
Easy to access and easy to understand reports evidence progress for benchmarking, saving teacher time. Feedback from UK schools suggests impact is closely linked to long-term attainment and success at KS2 SATs, as well as nurturing a love for reading.
