Embedding Reading Comprehension in Years 5 & 6

A two-day course where practical strategies for teaching reading comprehension will be explored.

This one-day course will –

  • Ensure teachers understand the progression of reading comprehension within National Curriculum 2014
  • Explore how reading journals can be used to show understanding of text
  • Provide teachers with 2 high quality children’s books to take away
  • Cover, in detail, the content of the Year 6 tests
  • Identify a sequence for teaching reading which uses pre-read activities and follow up tasks to maximise time spent on comprehension and understanding of a whole text
  • Explore activities to support Reading for Research and Reading for Pleasure

Participants will receive –

  • High quality children’s books and a pack of suggested activities for reading journals, follow-up and pre-read tasks, plus record keeping linked to the curriculum
  • Teaching sequences that support the teaching of Reading in a Literacy Tree tote bag
  • All training resources electronically
  • Lunch and refreshments

“Amazing. Every time I attend training at The Literacy Tree I leave so much more knowledgeable and fall in love with a new book!”
Whitney Raphael, Alfred Salter Primary School.

All our courses support the Reading for Pleasure agenda and strengthen teacher’s knowledge of how to use text in the classroom

This day stands alone, although delegates should be aware that this is day two of a two-day course and that some delegates will have already attended part one.

We regret that we are not able to refund bookings cancelled within 5 working days of the training date. Please see our cancellation policy for further information.
