Crack the secret of reading comprehension!
What is Cracking Comprehension?
Cracking Comprehension is an effective range of resources that have been developed specifically for the new 2014 curriculum to improve reading comprehension skills across the whole school.
Covering Years 2-6, with a mix of interactive whiteboard activities, practice texts and assessment tasks, Cracking Comprehension allows teachers to model, and children to practise those skills and techniques needed to improve reading comprehension skills.
How does Cracking Comprehension work?
Using a step-by-step approach it teaches children the skills and strategies they need to successfully explain their understanding of a wide range of texts, and offers ideas to extend their enjoyment of, and engagement with, reading.
There are nine comprehension units for each Year, three per term: one each of fiction, non-fiction and poetry or play scripts from well-known authors such as Dick King-Smith, Jacqueline Wilson, Michael Rosen, Carol Ann Duffy and many more.
