Guided Reading
During guided reading sessions in KS1 and LKS2, the children read books that are pitched at an instructional level, usually one coloured level above their home reader.  We use the Big Cats guided reading scheme which provides a broad range of text types and structure and provides challenge by raising the complexity of the writing and displaying texts in different ways.

The children’s level of comprehension is developed through discussion and questioning during taught group sessions by a teacher or teaching assistant. We also follow the Schofield and Simms reading comprehension scheme to help develop the children’s comprehension skills even further.  In UKS2, guided reading is taught through a whole class approach, focussed on reading skills and often linked to the class book.

Some of the Programme of study for reading will be planned and taught during whole class English sessions where a text is shared as a larger group.
