Destination Reader is our approach to teaching reading in KS2. It involves daily sessions incorporating whole class modelling prior to the children applying these skills through partner work and independent reading. Children deepen their understanding of the texts they read through the systematic use of a series of strategies and language stems. Destination Reader allows children to access real books of a high quality that are engaging and exciting.
In our reading lessons we will be studying the following books:
Term 1 - Dragon Mountain, by Katie and Kevin Tsang
Term 2 - Blackberry Blue, by Jamila Gavin
Our learning will focus on consolidating and extending knowledge of place value, calculation and fractions.
