Guided Reading in Key Stage 2
Guided reading sessions are planned for alongside the weekly English plan. Activities all relate to questions linked to the current class text and cover the specific content domain to be taught.
Guided reading is recorded on an assessment record sheet from Twinkl which is stuck into the inside cover of each child’s Reading Journal and annotated regularly – this helps inform termly assessments.
