Supporting reading development over Summer

The summer holidays provide the perfect opportunity for children to develop their interest and enthusiasm for reading. However, time away from the classroom can also cause children’s reading skills to slide before their return to school. But how do you keep children on track with their reading amidst all the distractions the holidays may bring?

Teaching the foundations of literacy – The DfE Reading Framework

For all teachers and educators involved in the teaching of early reading, the Department for Education’s new Reading Framework provides some great guidance when it comes to meeting expectations of teaching and provision. However, at 115 pages the policy document poses as quite an extensive bedtime read. In the following blog post, we have provided an easy to digest summary for all those interested to find out more.

Attention Skills and Reading!

Intuitively, parents and teachers understand that attention is important to learning. If you cannot pay attention in class or while reading a book, you are not going to learn much. However, attention is much more foundational than just ‘paying attention’. Attention skills impact self-control, working memory, and cognitive flexibility, which are known collectively as executive function skills…

How do teachers become certified examiners?

As a Lexplore Customer, we will visit your school or organisation to carry out the theoretical and practical Training needed for your staff members to test children independently. The technology and method is extremely simple to set up and understand meaning the training process is usually completed in one or two days.

How do eye movements reflect reading attainment?

Reading involves a complicated interplay between many different cognitive and linguistic processes. Measuring when, where, and how a child’s eyes move in relation to the words they read allows us to quickly evaluate how effectively these processes work together and pick up on minor differences in the way they process text.

 “Eye movements is one of the best ways to index reading ability at an incredibly in-depth level.” 

Julie Kirkby – Professor in Psychology at Bournemouth University

Our Eye tracking assessment has been developed following over 30 years of peer-reviewed research at one of the leading medical institutes in the world into the unique insight eye movements can offer us into reading.

How long does the Lexplore assessment take?

We estimate that the assessment takes between two and five minutes per pupil, depending upon their reading speed. This enables schools to quickly assess a large number of pupils without additional workload. The results are available immediately in our user-friendly portal with no marking required.

 ” One of the main reasons we chose Lexplore is because it frees up so much time. Previously, it took teachers an entire term to do accurate assessments on their whole class. By contrast, 200 children went through the Lexplore assessment process in a week. Within five minutes of each assessment, we had the results of their reading activity and an accurate attainment level.”
