Reading support for school Years 1 & 2
(aged 6 to 7 years)

Without the support of appropriately structured reading practice, over 20% of children will fail to reach their potential. The BRI-ARI programme prevents this costly failure and enables children to keep up with their peers.

Many KS1 children – from mid Year 1 and Year 2 onwards – struggle with reading books that are either too difficult or provide too little reading practice. BRI 3 and all three ARI sets provide struggling readers with the unparalleled instructional support and reading practice they need.

The Piper Books BRI-ARI reading programme…

  • Provides meticulously structured reading practice
  • Offers a wealth of ‘real reading’ stories
  • Is compatible with mainstream Synthetic Phonics programmes
  • Has concise, straightforward instruction that is ideal for TAs providing extra support
“This is such a well-refined system.
My son, now 7, started with BRI-ARI at age four and half and has read through all but the last ARI set. He didn’t actually have any trouble mastering the code; syntax and vocabulary was more his problem. As soon as the language moved away from the familiar he would become frustrated and say, ‘I don’t know what that means’. He liked the ARI books because there were no surprises with regard to decoding, so it meant he could concentrate on understanding what he was reading and reading with ‘expression’ when he had to read to his teacher at school. He can read with expression quite well now, but I let him take his time with this and it seems to have paid off.”Specialist Literacy Teacher and Synthetic Phonics Trainer
