Alex Quigley, Teacher, author, blogger and Director of Huntington Research School

Reading comprehension and vocabulary gaps is an issue that faces all pupils at every key stage. We know that even before school, that vocabulary gaps emerge and they prove resistant. As our pupils face an increasingly challenging curriculum, I offer strategies around vocabulary instruction that can help our pupils access the language of school and go on to flourish far beyond exams.
