London 2012 Olympics - Whole Class Reading Session!

This whole class reading session aims to develop children’s comprehension skills through a reading of a non-fiction information text about the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The resource pack includes the extract and all of the activities for the session, which the class are guided through via a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation. This is followed by a series of activities aiming to develop children’s retrieval, explanation, inference, prediction and summarising skills. It also contains a vocabulary check immediately after the extract is read to clarify any unfamiliar/ difficult language.

The tasks are comprised of quick-check questions, solo thinking, pair/ group discussions and deeper thinking activities.

The session is best suited for children in years 3-5, although with minor adaptations it could feasibly be used with slightly younger and older year groups.
