Guided Reading

Guided Reading

We will continue to provide the children with a range of text types to apply their reading skills to. The key reading skills are as follows: 


  • Predicting
  • Asking questions
  • Clarifying (Spot breakdowns and try to mend them) 
  • Summarising (put important items together)
  • Inferring using clues
  • Making connections to background knowledge


Reading skills will continue to be explicitly taught to the children, as well as developing inference of a carefully chosen text. Where possible, texts are chosen in line with current affairs or topics we are learning across the curriculum.
