X2 challenging assessments for year 4 based around SATS ks2 style questions reading. Fiction/non-fiction
To promote reading for pleasure. Each child has a tube map with their library bar code, name and class on. They also have a tube map with “lines” to follow. Each line has a range of books to read. They also have a theme and these are different for each year group. Once the child has completed a line, you may want to reward them. Posters are included of the author and title of the book for each year group.
Here are a set of questions based on the prologue for the Nowhere Emporium. They are all based on the reading domain Questions- 2d explain how the author selects words and phrases to enhance meaning. This chapter links well with the Greatest Showman. This reading led on to pupils writing the opening of the Circus using clips from the film. Hope this is helpful for someone.
This is a short comprehension on chapter 1 and 2 based around the content domain words in context. It may be a good starting point for someone.
This is a lesson looking at the way the author has built character in the text Black Powder. Some of the ideas have been taken from training but not around the text. The lesson has been put together myself.
This is a context lesson to the novel Black powder. It has a match up activity where the pupils can learn more about the historical and social history of the time. There is a focus on character for this lesson. Some aspects of the lesson are linked to online videos and the information is taken from books so these are not my work. However, the lesson as a whole has been put together by myself. I do not claim any of the factual information is my own work.
A comprehension activity based on a single non-fiction text. A mixture of question types. The reading material is from the Wildlife trust website and this is not my own work. Only the questions.
An extract from Sky dancer. This story is not my own but chapter one is on the book trust website. All questions have been created by myself a range of SATS focus on 3 mark questions
These are a planning tool to help support reading. They break the content domains into key skills children can use when they are reading(Success criteria). They highlight the key vocabulary children need to know to answer question relating to them. Key question stems are taken from past SATS papers(these question stems are not my own and I give full credit to the person, who created them ) However, all other aspects of the resource are my own work.
