Description

Reading comprehension course - One full day and two half days across the academic year for primary teachers and literacy leaders.

See a clear path forward for pupils in your school by taking a fresh, in-depth look at reading. Advance your knowledge and understanding of how pupils make progress in developing comprehension and consider how the curriculum and your lessons meet the challenges of Key Stage 1 and 2.

Covered within course are a number of themes:

  • Selecting texts and considering different ways of developing comprehension skills;

  • Exploring fiction and non-fiction, including how to use several texts to explore a theme;

  • The ‘big 10’ reading comprehension strategies that teachers need to develop;

  • Use of whole class texts, independent reading and collaborative reading;

  • Questioning and improving the quality of book talk;

  • Ways of interacting with different types of texts;

  • Exploring the issues of progression – what difficulties do pupils experience with comprehension and how can we address these problems;

  • Reading and disadvantaged pupils;

  • Considering ways to improve pupils’ ability to read aloud with confidence, fluency and intonation that shows understanding;

  • Assessing reading comprehension and unpicking end of key stage assessments.
