Guided Reading in KS1 and KS2

In years one to six, the children are taught guided reading four times a week.  Lessons last for thirty minutes.


To support their love of reading, the children study a text for between 1 week and 5 weeks.  These texts are usually linked to our enquiry curriculum.


Lessons focus on one reading skill per session:


  • retrieval
  • inference
  • prediction
  • summarising
  • vocabulary
  • comparing texts and characters
  • author choice based on audience and purpose.
