Strengthening reading comprehension - SESSION 5
This session will look at the strategies involved in teaching reading comprehension - how we can teach pupils to better understand what they read and to find meaning in the wide range of vocabulary used by authors. With the increasing demands on pupils at year 6 to find meaning in quite complex texts, this session looks at how we can prepare pupils across the whole of the primary phase through whole class/ guided reading and English lessons. NQTs will: • Have a better understand of the many ways in which a pupil might comprehend a text • Plan for whole class/ guided reading sessions which focus on effective questioning and discussion around a quality text • Have a wider range of reading journal activities to use with their class to develop the written response to comprehension questions
