Guided Reading

As part of our reading provision at Brettenham Primary School, year 1 start on the ‘Daily supported reading’ programme and move onto guided reading activities once they reach the Blue Level. This is also accessed by some able reception pupils during the summer term.


Within KS1 and KS2, children are expected to complete a daily session of whole class reading which must last at least 30 minutes.


Teachers are responsible for the content and coverage of the lessons to ensure all key reading skills are covered. Activities should be based on the National curriculum and the contents domain found in the National Curriculum Test Framework documents.

  • Each class has a weekly text which they use to cover the different reading skills required to meet age related expectations
  • Tasks rather than the text are differentiated to support the needs of the different learners within the class.
  • Personalised texts may be used to support EAL or SEN learners within a class
  • Activities are reading focused, bespoke and have a clear reading objective and success criteria
  • All lessons should incorporate a plenary to address any misconceptions.
