Since your sessions Charlie’s reading has come on unbelievably. He actually wants to read and now wants to sit and help his little sister too. He has suddenly started reading pretty much fluently and with expression. He has also advanced by two book bands at school. I can only put this down to your sessions so thank you so much!! 
- Amy, (Charlie's Mum)

What happens in our 6-session reading intervention programme?

  • Classes that have been designed to support the teaching of key areas of the Key Stage 1 English Curriculum
  • We cover and help develop specific elements such as spoken language and performance, phonics, spelling, reading comprehension and writing in different genres
  • We help improve confidence and enthusiasm for learning and develop self-belief
  • We teach children to celebrate and learn from their mistakes in reading and writing rather than fear and avoid them
  • We educate and engage the class through the use of educational games, magic tricks and puppetry
  • Each 6-week programme comes with its own workbook for the children to use - perfect for providing evidence for what your school is doing to tick 'those boxes'
  • By the end of the programme the children will have written their own story book
  • We can deliver our sessions live and in person or online and virtually

"The Class Magic host was fantastic with all the children ensuring they all got the most out of their sessions. We have already seen children who would not usually choose to read pick up and enjoy a book with their friends. This has been lovely to see and it's all thanks to The Magic of Books"
- Lauren (Longmoor Primary School)

"My son loved 'celebrating his mistakes'. He was really engaged by Cheeky Monkey and Freddie Fantastic's magic and it really held his attention. I've spoken to other Mums and it sounds like all the other children had fun together and learnt lots too. He really enjoyed reading the story the class wrote together and was keen to do it on his own. It was really nice to see that he didn’t panic when he couldn’t read something. In similar situations in lessons at school we have had tears. Freddie Fantastic was great with encouragement and not making the children feel rushed."

- Amy, (Ss Peter and Paul)

We want to help you to help your students feel confident in the classroom, to feel safe making mistakes and to progress and develop academically and emotionally. We see our 'Class Magic' reading programmes being the mortar that schools can use to help build and develop the academic foundations of their students in Key Stage 1 and encourage the children who may be falling behind or who simply need that extra bit of time, attention and encouragement to fall in love with reading, writing and learning. Not all students learn and retain information in the same ways and teachers face a mammoth task making sure that no child is left behind. Through the use of Magic tricks, comedy, games, puppetry and a carefully structured 6-lesson programme we support your mission in improving reading comprehension, writing, story structure, performance, spoken language and phonics in a way that your pupils may never have seen before and in a way that is guaranteed to ignite their imagination and have them reaching for a good book in no time!
