Lessons in Teaching Reading Comprehension

A message from the authors

The National Curriculum for 2014 places an emphasis on encouraging children to read for pleasure and to be able to discuss what they have read in order to effectively demonstrate secure comprehension skills.   We are often told by teachers and trainees that they are finding it difficult to meet the needs of more able readers particularly in years 5 and 6 and require ways in which they can challenge pupils particularly with the introduction of level 6 tests in Year 6.
