This NEW two session course provides Year 5 and 6 teachers with a range of tools to help extend and deepen the ways in which students respond to a range of reading materials, both fiction and non-fiction. Colleagues will be supported to enhance their curriculum design and text selection in order to provide a rich reading offer that supports progress towards achievement of the higher standard in the end of KS2 reading assessments.

The course is grounded in research and classroom practice and will cover the essential knowledge and skills that underpin successful comprehension of texts both during and after the act of reading. Practical activities and demonstrations will illustrate how to use whole-class, group, and individual approaches during reading sessions. The course will explore ways to develop pupil’s thinking at a deeper and more sustained level, as well as consider how to develop the clarity and precision of how children express and develop their thoughts.

Reference will be made to statutory assessment domains and participants will be supported to see how the principles and approaches of effective reading instruction supports progress and attainment against statutory measures. Analysis of past papers will be used to highlight implications for test preparation and technique, without losing sight of the long-term, core aim of developing confident, thoughtful and articulate readers, able to cope with the demands of increasingly complex texts.

By attending this course, participants will:

  • explore a range of approaches to developing higher level reading knowledge and skills that enhance the quality of expression in responding to texts
  • participate in demonstrations of reading instruction designed to support achievement at the higher standard, and boost all pupils ability to think about, and discuss what they have read
  • gain insight into what might characterise performance at the higher standard in reading
  • understand how best to prepare pupils for the demands of the KS2 reading paper within a principled, evidence-informed approach to developing motivated, curious, and thoughtful readers.
