KS2 SAT Buster Reading CGP ‘walkthroughs’ PowerPoints to accompany the CGP Reading workbook for the following texts Non-Fiction: Dare to Dance; 1950’s Drive In Fiction: Underground City; The Old Photograph Poetry: Lost Dog; The Gentlemen in Grey I used these to support my less able and on track children to prepare for their reading SATs.
