Introducing our new Skills Academy reading intervention...

27 Jan 2017

Skills AcademyWe are delighted to introduce our new Skills Academy reading intervention!

Aimed at Year 7 and 8 pupils who are falling behind, it uses football skills and tricks as motivation to improve core reading comprehension and confidence. 

Building on the success of Premier League Reading Stars, the 10-week programme focuses on five core comprehension skills: questioning, clarifying, summarising, predicting and inference.

Students are rewarded for their progress with the chance to learn how to master amazing freestyle football tricks.

Sign up and you’ll receive a range of resources, including 10 curriculum-linked lesson plans, a set of 20 books, membership of the National Literacy Trust Network and one year's access to the Skills Academy microsite which includes all programme content. 

Materials will be available from 20 February - find out more and enjoy an early bird discount if you buy now.
