Whole Class Reading
Whole class reading forms part of lessons and Guided reading activities in school.
Whole class teaching of reading comprehension is covered within the literacy lesson to allow children to apply the skills taught in reading comprehension to the class text. It is also part of the dedicated guided reading sessions which take place three times a week. Teachers will recap the skills taught and children will have the opportunity to answer a set of questions on a range of strands and question types covered thus far.
Children who struggle with reading comprehension based on their Reading Comprehension Test results are put forward for reciprocal reading interventions that support the development of reading comprehension skills in supportive group activities.
