Reading at Altmore

In KS1, English lessons and Reading are taught through our bespoke units of work designed around a CLPE core text (wherever possible) each term. These units of work are designed by our teachers and aim to include:

  • introducing a text
  • making predictions about a text
  • walking through a text
  • reading a text and exploring the text in great detail
  • role playing scenes from a text, focussing on using the story language and story vocabulary
  • ordering the sequence of events
  • taking part in comprehension/reciprocal reading lessons
  • writing book reviews
