Guided Reading

At Cranborne First School, guided reading is taught daily in small ability groups, where groups of children will discuss a wide range of texts including, fiction, non-fiction, play scripts and poetry. Throughout the week, groups of children will work with the teacher and teaching assistant to further develop their decoding and comprehension skills. Independent activities will also be set to able the children to engage in activities such as book talk with a partner, formal reading comprehension tasks, practising new strategies, presenting a poem or play or reading simply for pleasure.
