Role on the Wall scribed by Anjali Patel – CLPE

  • Guided Reading in Year 1 including Whole Class Guided Reading

During these days, we will work through  teaching sequences for fiction, non-fiction and poetry that are customised to meet the specific needs of this year group, will help them to meet Age Related Expectations and to be prepared for transition into Year 2. Time will also be spent looking at what is required to be working at Greater Depth. Using quality texts, we will identify precisely what to teach and practise in reading, spelling, punctuation, and grammar for writing.


There will be a free copy of a quality fiction text – Little Red for all attendees to take away with them.
