Riain's Reading Journey

Description

A close-up view of one pupil's progress in reading over a 12-week period, captured on camera by the teachers of Measham Primary School in rural Leicestershire.

The journey starts with four-year-old Riain sharing a book with friends and explaining the story as he remembers it, greatly stimulated by the pictures. Already his enjoyment is clear. The emphasis on creating a love of books is uppermost in his teachers' minds as they introduce more challenging tasks.

Riain's two teachers, Jane McNee and Sarah Rundlett, record his progress as we follow him through a variety of activities in a phonics-based approach to learning letter sounds and recognising words. As we witness his progress, the accompanying video diary footage shows Jane and Sarah judging the best time for him to move on, as well as recording and reflecting on his learning.
