Making Connections - Year 2 Greater Depth Reading

This resource is perfect for YR2 teachers, it is a set of activity cards which can be used in any KS1 classroom. The cards have the opportunity for children to make links between books (this could be; characters, settings, events in the story, author, writing style and more). The resource encourages children to be independent and chose their own links between the texts - it may be different to peers or the adults. FOR EXAMPLE: Gruffalo and Little Red Riding Hood link because: Both are set in the forest Both have scary hairy creatures in them Both include someone trying to play a trick/joke Both include a character walking through the woods - the list could go on… This activity is open ended and suitable for all learners, the link will always be correct as long as the children are able to explain and give suitable reasons. The books in these sheets are all KS1 suitable books and some which KS1 children will be familiar with. This includes an example card and a guidance for teacher cards. The activity cards would be excellent evidence for the TAF check in Year 2 as well. SEE LINK TO TAF 2018/19: • make links between the book they are reading and other books they have read.
Year Two Reading Running Records for Moderation EvidenceQuick View

Year Two Reading Running Records for Moderation Evidence

I have created reading running records to gather evidence for working towards Y2, working at the expected standard in Y2 and working at greather depth. The texts include: Owl Babies (WTS) The Gruffalo (WTS) The Smartest Giant in Town (EXS) The Day the Crayons Quit (EXS) The Twits (GDS) The Girl with the Dragon Heart (GDS) For each book there is a running record section with common exception words, multi-syllabic words and words containing suffixes. For each book, there are also reading comprehension questions, covering inference and prediction. These can be used to gather evidence for Y2 moderation. I intend to record the children reading as well as using the running records. I will then stop recording and scribe their responses to the comprehension questions.
