Strengthening reading comprehension - SESSION 5


Strengthening reading comprehension


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

Booking Information

There is a bulk bundle package (all 14 sessions) for £695 per NQT which will save schools up to £355 per NQT. If a school wishes to purchase the 'bulk bundle package' for a Year 1 – 6 NQT, it must be selected and checked out of your basket PRIOR to the school then booking the NQT on to each of the 14 sessions (see details below).

NB. If the bulk bundle package is not selected and checked out of your basket then the school will NOT receive the £355 discount per NQT. The NQT must also be booked onto each session even if your school has purchased the bulk bundle package for them. This is necessary in order for the NQT to receive confirmation and reminders of their place at each session as well as notification of any cancellations and evaluation requests to their individual email address.

To purchase the bulk bundle package Head teachers/ School Business Managers should go to http://schoolsservices.lewisham.gov.uk. Click on the Services homepage and select 'Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Appropriate Body and Primary NQT Training'. In the right hand column under ‘Services’ click the 'Buy Now' button. Then tick the box and select the number of ‘packages’ you wish to purchase (1 for each NQT). Add to your basket and checkout.

Alternatively schools can book ‘pay as you go’ individual sessions at £75 per session per NQT. Please add the items (sessions) to your basket and then check out.
