Turning Pages

The May edition of nasen Connect features a review of the Turning Pages reading programme from the SENCO at Yapton Primary School following short trial by a TA with a Year 6 pupil.

Highlights of the review include what the school particularly like about Turning Pages including: • No specific training needed; anyone who can read can use it to help those who can’t (including pupils who can read well and would be a suitable mentor)

• The pupil appreciated the more ‘grown up’ approach of Turning Pages compared to other intervention he had tried. • The pupil said that with the short daily sessions (20 minutes each day as recommended) he was making progress and this kept him enthusiastic and motivated.



• It was good having the phonic elements clearly set out in the manuals and worked though before using the reading books.

• Turning Pages represent good value for money. The school only had 2 weeks for the trial but reported that the short term effects were ‘definitely positive’ and they would continue using it. We hope to get some more feedback when they have had time to progress further though the manuals.
