Whole Class Reading
We teach the skills for reading comprehension using a whole class reading approach where we all share the same text and analyse it together. The texts chosen may be the class reader, a poem or other texts that help us with our learning across the curriculum. The text is shared by the class teacher and children together, with everyone taking turns to read or listen to others and then we work together to interrogate and understand the meaning of what we have read.
In Key Stage 1 we use ICLUE to support our understanding and ask questions about what we have read together and we use VIPERS in Key Stage 2.
