Year 1 – Seven sets of editable oral reading skills per week for 7 weeks – based on a couple of sentences or a single paragraph. (Powerpoint). Each reading domain is used to revise the skills from one week to the next. Skills (one for each slide) include: visualisation, vocabulary, prediction, clarification, inference, retrieval and sequencing.
We have ordered the reading domains based on which skills we feel would be the most appropriate, but they can easily be moved around. A focus domain could be used from one text to another, all depending on the need of your cohort. These should lead your cohort nicely from Autumn A of the previous half term to Autumn B, using the reading skills learned last half term.
We use these as warm-ups to our reading lessons or at any time we have a free moment to keep those skills sharp!
