This term, we will continue working towards our SATs. We will applying our 'Expert Tips' to help us unpick SATs questions to help us understand how to effectively answer questions to gain maximum marks. We will be using our Comprehension X books, alongside Cosmic and a range of reading activities based on fiction, non-fiction, songs and poetry to ensure that we can apply our skills over a range of genres.
As a Key Stage, we are having a big drive at improving our reading skills, in preparation for our SATs tests at the end of the year. We have recently started to use 'Project X Comprehension Express' 3 times a week which focuses on 2 key reading skills per lesson. As a class, we look at these skills together before the children use these skills independently to answer the questions provided.
We then utilise these 'Expert Tips' in our English lessons and other two guided reading sessions throughout the week. Our key text in Guided Reading is 'Boy in the Tower'. The children have been looking at gathering key vocabulary, formulating definitions, making predictions and making connections between what they have read to answer questions.
