This afternoon some Reception parents attended a meeting about Parent Assisted Immersive Reading. This is a created by Jon Walters and Steve Murray and is a programme that we are trialling in our Reception classes. The aim is to develop an enthusiasm for reading at home and high quality scaffolding, questioning and discussion for parents with their children. To find out.

P.A.I.R. draws on, and has included, the three main reading styles parents most naturally use when reading aloud to their children (i.e. describer, comprehender & performance orientated). Along with this, it incorporates opportunities to practise Literal, Inferential and Critical Thinking questions. P.A.I.R. has also added the power of de-contextualisation (non-immediate talk) plus guidance in the development of vocabulary skills.
P.A.I.R. books achieve this by providing parents with scaffolding (in the form of questions, tips and prompts) embedded in each page. When these support strategies are applied during a Read-Aloud session, parents develop new skills that can be used to improve their child’s reading.
P.A.I.R.’s support strategies help parents to create a structured and engaging ‘conversation’ around the book. This is a major breakthrough in early literacy education and empowers parents in their role as the ‘first teacher’.
Each P.A.I.R. book includes scaffolding for ‘Whole-book Awareness’. This device appears on the title page and the final page and supports the ‘Performance Orientated’ parent reading style.
