Reading comprehension and APP

    We have been assessing the children using the lancashire reading progression document and the AF linked questions and I have found that the children throughout school are becoming very good at oral responses to reading comprehension questions. However I am becoming concerned that we have gone to far this way and would like to introduce some written reading comprehension exercises. Does anyone use a photocopiable book or scheme that they recommend with short passages of text and appropriately linked APP?
  2. We use reading journals in which they write down their answers. Not a scheme but you could give them some questions to work through once they have done their guided reading. Ours are excellent orally but used to struggle to record their responses in a way that made sense! This works especially well if you teach them how to do reciprocal reading (which is for Y4, 5 and 6 really) as it shows them to be independent learners.
