This week we were reading our book Danny Champion of the world by Roald Dahl. We acted out parts of the story and created a story board of events.
We have been learning our new approach to reading books. This involves a quick-fire warm up comprehension task. of 6 questions, whereby we recap previous events.
Then discussing in pairs. Then thinking on our own about what has happened. Finally a solo task
We use these sessions to develop different reading skills.
Authors choice: understanding the messages the author is trying to convey.
Retrieval: using skimming and scanning skills to find straight forward answers.
Inference: What the text does not include but we can work out for ourselves.
Explain: connect ideas by interpreting different ideas in a text together and explaining how they relate.
Prediction: we consider what we have already read to inform us what we think could happen next.
Summarise: children round up in a few words what a chapter or a paragraph was all about.
