What the pupils say about the Intervention Groups
These are some of the end of year comments from children who have been part of Intervention Groups
"If you've got a problem, think straight and tell." The TA leading the group 'answered questions and I felt at ease asking them' - Self-esteem group
Maths 1:1 - The TA 'helps me by explaining the questions', it helps back in the classroom 'because when I'm in Maths, I know more what to do when I get stuck.'
"The Wave 3 Reading programme helps me back in the classroom because when we do spelling tests I remember what we did in the group"
"Therapeutic play sessions are fun and if I'm stressed it releases the stress. I have learned to speak more about my problems, I come out relaxed"
"I have enjoyed Wave 3 Maths because I learned new things that I didn't know. When I am back in class it helps me because I remember the methods I have been taught"
Using Dyslexikit "I have learned lots, it was fun and it made me excited. I know my whole alphabet. Mrs Allen helps me to understand and teaches me to play new games"
Writing - 'It helps me to do more work than I used to. Sometimes we do the work before the class has and I know how to do it. I can write more words than I used to.'
'I've learned how to read a bit better. When I read with her I can read properly in class. My spellings are good - Reading/Spelling
Social Skills and Anger Management work- "I have learned to share, to calm down, and to talk and tell people. It helps to talk. It has helped me back in the classroom to think a little bit quicker and keeps me calm"
'I love it, because you can learn new things. I can read chapter books now. The TA teaches me the sound cards and spelling rules...I get confused in class sometimes so I can remember what she says and it helps.' - Wave 3 Reading
Year 6 Transition- 'They gave me some great advice for secondary. I am now ready and excited to go to secondary.'
' I was really worried at first but now I feel very confident. My favourite thing was knowing what to put in my bag.'
The Maths group helps me because when I get into class I feel more prepared.
"I like the Intervention groups because I like Reading and writing. The stories are also exciting. I have learned to use bigger words I didn't know. I can now use full stops and capital letters. The group helps me back in class because if I am stuck on a word, I remember if we did it in a group"
Auditory Memory group- 'It helps me with my Literacy. It's interesting. When the TA takes me out it helps me in class with remembering things.'
