Partner Reading

Year 5 ventured down to Early Years to do some paired reading with FS2.  When we were reading with the children, we made sure they understood the story by asking them different types of questions.  In class we have been learning about Bloom’s Taxonomy and we have been focusing on the first three levels: ‘I remember’, ‘I understand’ and ‘I can apply’.  We have been looking at various children’s books and creating example questions for the three different levels.

When we arrived in Early Years, we were put into pairs and chose a quiet spot to read with our partner.  We made sure we used lots of expressions and we definitely asked plenty of questions.  We had a fantastic time and even had time to play with our partners for five minutes in the end!
