The support that we received from Jo was invaluable. She provided fantastic demonstration lessons, practical resources and excellent ideas and advice about how to take guided reading forward in our school. All the staff from Reception to Year 6 now feel confident in delivering high-quality guided reading with the children, and are enthusiastic about planning sessions for the new year.
