Try one of my unique, high-quality, engaging guided reading lessons for FREE. Completely independent home / remote / distance/ blended learning using interactive PowerPoint hyperdoc presentations, which guide them through the lesson using embedded audio and video. The next best thing to having the teacher there!


Suitable for children in Years 5 and 6, or even Year 7, if they have gaps in learning. My lesson packs  cover all of the skills in the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum reading content domains (areas tested in the Year 6 SATs) and will support children preparing for tests, as well as providing opportunities to analyse high-quality writing and try some writing themselves. The lessons are based on a freely available text extract from a real book and the link to that is provided so you don't need to purchase the book.
