How two primary schools are using the latest techniques and strategies to encourage early reading.
Theories on teaching children how to read are constantly evolving. Reporter Charlotte Hume visits primary schools in Birmingham and London, to find out about their approaches towards enhancing reading abilities.
She follows two six-year olds at each school, who have learnt to read in different ways. Esther is a good reader and has learnt through a phonics programme. Haseeb, however, is finding it harder and has been placed on an intervention programme called Reading Recovery.
Charlotte summarises current research in this area, and what approaches are working, in the continuing efforts to improve literacy standards in primary schools.
