The 1:1 session

This session is about teaching, assessment, deciding on the next learning steps, and choosing the right text to support these. It must be focussed and delivered with pace.

  • The reader must get out own book, target card, home school book, and sound check sheets
  • Warm up – phrase cards, sound check sheets or comprehension
  • Child to say target
  • Introduce book or recap as appropriate
  • Read to or with if required
  • Child reads, adult makes notes (quick miscue analysis)
  • If necessary adult models the prompt when pupil comes to an unknown word (until prompt used independently)
  • Praise given – specific to cue / target
  • Re negotiate target if appropriate
  • End the session by choosing new book and child to finish by repeating their target
