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:
- 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.
