This video training is aimed at primary school leaders and leaders of reading in primary schools. The government has pinpointed the need for schools to focus on our most vulnerable readers (the lowest 20%). This is across different age groups. Using lesson logistics in reading, this training describes a way of organising your lessons so that all learners access the same age-related expectations.

What is lesson logistics?

  • Lesson logistics is a different way to look at differentiation;
  • It doesn’t involve differentiating up and down across year groups’ objectives for children of different abilities;
  • It involves organising your lessons and resources to remove all children’s barriers, enabling them to access their year groups’ objectives and challenging them to be deeper thinkers in reading, not achieve objectives from a higher year group.

The training:

  • Gives you the opportunity to consider a different approach to supporting your most vulnerable readers;
  • Consider the research outcomes about reading for your most vulnerable readers;
  • Starts by considering the barriers many children have to reading
  • Provides a practical solution to these barriers;
  • Considers how to support different aspects of reading, including vocabulary, the level of questioning, sequencing, the importance of retrieval, predicting, helping with word choices, etc.
  • Gives examples of how to use the system with various books;
  • Provides you with a system to get started immediately

This training will help you delve deeply into the culture of reading teaching at your school or academy. It will help you take stock, look at the bigger picture and make decisions about your teachers’ practice and your pupils’ reading.
