Planning to cover the majority of the book ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty, linked to objectives for reading at a Year 5 level.
There is a ‘reading forum’ for each week which introduces the focus and guides you through the associated chapters with questions to ask and discuss. The questions are then collected on sheets for each week for the children to answer. The ‘forum’ lessons can be a single day or cover multiple sessions depending on the speed and ability of the children/readers. Question sheets include a greater depth/challenge section to target more able readers.
