ReadingWise For Parents

Working together with schools and parents ReadingWise has helped over 30,000 children who struggle to read.

ReadingWise at home

Schools that use ReadingWise in the classroom can also use it as part of their parent engagement strategy so learners can continue to progress through the online sessions at home both in term time and over holiday periods.

However, for children who don’t have access to ReadingWise through school, parents can purchase one or more modules online, from £49 per learner, for a one-year licence. See the drop down menu at the bottom of the page for prices and to purchase a licence.

...And if your school goes on to purchase a licence during that time, we’ll refund the cost of the relevant licence to you. We think that’s only fair.

Julie's reading age at the start was 8 years 10 months and when retested at the end, after 3 months using the ReadingWise programme, her reading age had increased to 12 years.

Using the modules at home:

Zip – for pupils ages 5 to 7.

Using a familiar structure pupils work through letter/sound correspondences at their own pace. They have to master each before moving on.

Decoding – for ages 7 and above.

Children have their own lesson plan based on reading age. The lesson plan lasts up to 20 hours, length based on initial reading age. Regular 20 minutes sessions are optimal.

The programme takes the learner through activities to build and break down blends and words; memory strategies to tackle tricky words; and working with sentences to focus on fluency, inference and vocabulary.

Comprehension – for ages 10 to 12.

Working through a story called the Red Stone of Calcutta, the learner is introduced to key comprehension strategies over the course of 20 sessions and is encouraged to apply these strategies to new chapters of the book.

Learners Library – for ages 8 to 12.

Working through the interactive library of children's classics, including favourites such as Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Alice in Wonderland, readers practice skills at every stage.
