Help! I am starting a new job in September in year six, and I know that reading and writing are very weak. The school are desperate to get better results in sats next year as they are in special measures, and I am already feeling the pressure! Besides that I really want to help the children progress before secondary school. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can help the children improve their reading comprehension skills, aside from just giving them comprehension tests to do. I have thought about getting them to highlight key words in the text, but does anyone do anything different? Any help or advice would be much appreciated!
