Explore the key skills and experiences involved in developing higher order reading skills in KS2, actively ensuring progress from KS1, which meet the needs of the National Curriculum 2014. Participants will investigate a variety of purposeful, creative and inclusive approaches designed to support children in group reading focusing on improving reader response and comprehension.
Participants will also consider the importance of the texts chosen for group reading and how these provide children with a breadth and range of texts to support their reading development. The course will focus on incorporating a range of strategies and activities designed to engage children in thinking critically about texts; developing reader response using a range of quality children’s books during group sessions. Each participant will receive a copy of a high quality children’s text to support learning back in school.
Participants will gain:
