At Sharmans, we believe that teaching children to read quickly is essential in order for children to develop a love of reading and be able to access the KS2 curriculum. For children who need further support with phonics in KS2, we use the Little Wandle Rapid Catch-up programme. This is a daily intervention programme to rapidly teach children to read. Here is the weekly timetable for the intervention sessions:
Day 1: 20-minute phonics lesson
Day 2: 20-minute phonics lesson
Day 3: Review day: A quick review of the teaching from days 1 and 2 10-minute phonics lesson plus 10- to 15-minute reading practice session.
Day 4: 10- to 15-minute reading practice session
Day 5: 10- to 15-minute reading practice session
