Guided Reading

Guided Reading

 Within our daily Guided Reading sessions, everyone reads in a small group with me each week, with a focus on reading fluently and with expression and answering comprehension questions.


Our Guided Reading sessions this year are focused on supporting us with developing our reading comprehension skills in order to support us as much as possible with the SATs reading comprehension test, as well as to ensure that we are not just able to read the words, but to understand them and the intention behind them.


We will be continuing to develop our reading comprehension strategies, with a particular emphasis on techniques like ‘repairing reading breakdowns’, ‘summarising texts’, ‘inferring meaning as a reading detective’ and ‘justifying our responses’. We will also be further strengthening our speed in responding to texts, as well as our test skills, in terms of how to answer questions most effectively and efficiently.
