10 week bumper pack of reading comprehensions linked to a variety of rock, pop and alternative songs specifically chosen for this pack. This is particularly suitable for Years 5, 6 and 7.

Each song is broken down into 4 reading comprehensions, starting with retrieval and recording, then context clues, inference and finally an assessment where children are encouraged to work out what type of question they are being asked.

Weekly lesson plans are provided along with answer sheets.

Breaking reading down into key skills will allow children to appreciate, understand and enjoy these songs whilst focusing on improving their comprehension with this structured and precise method.

Songs include:
Big Yellow Taxi (by Joni Mitchell)
Indian Sunset (by Elton John)
Ironic (by Alanis Morissette)
Pompeii (by Bastille)
Space Oddity (by David Bowie)
The Trooper (by Iron Maiden)
The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald (by Gordon Lightfoot)
Thriller (by Michael Jackson)
What is Truth? (by Johnny Cash)
What’s he Building? (by Tom Waits)
