We use Doug Lemov's Reading Reconsidered to help develop our approach to teaching reading. He identifies 5 types of text that children need to become familiar with: Archaic, Non Linear, Complexity of Narrator, Complexity of Plot, and Resistant texts. We have chosen one from each type that will be covered by the classes, as well as many others. We have also attached a '5 Plagues of Reading' document that will give you a further overview, should you need it!

Oak Class visited Gresham's in Holt for a day of Shakespeare. The cast of 4 performed an entertaining version of The Tempest. It was a fantastic day, everyone was mesmerized by the performance.

Henry VIth part 3

Reading Challenge Club have been reading Henry VIth Part 3.

Favourite quotes were, "Ah! Clifford, murder not this innocent child."

"Thy father slew my father; therefore die!"

All very bloody but at least it's in iambic pentameter!


The Invisible Man

Reading Club also read HG Wells' The Invisible Man. Some children took it too far.
