Catch Up Your Code is aimed at identifying gaps in knowledge of the alphabetic code of English. This knowledge is critical for efficient decoding and spelling, and gaps in this knowledge impact negatively on reading comprehension and quality writing.

This easy-to-implement, evidence-based approach has been proven to achieve an exceptional impact on student learning for both whole class and small groups.

Catch Up Your Code contains an assessment that identifies the gaps in code knowledge and a series of 10-minute lessons that provide a fast and effective way of catching up this knowledge.
