Reading in Autumn 2


When we read in Oak class we use the expert tips identified from Comprehension X. The children will use these to understand more from texts and read with purpose.


Our lessons are structured in the following way:

1. Retrieve, predict, explain and make links

2. Explore vocabulary

3. Rapid retrieval

4. Time to talk and think for yourself

5. Flying solo.


We follow this structure to delve deep into different extracts of text and this compliments the Comprehension X expert tips.


Over autumn 2 we have looked at texts linked to Black History Month and in-particular, Michelle Obama's story, as well as texts linked around versions of A Christmas Carol.
