In Book Bunnies, we concentrate on End of Key Stage One (Year 2 ) objectives for reading. This class is for children who are confident with their phonics and ready to apply their increased phonic knowledge to decoding unfamiliar multisyllabic words, for fluent and expressive reading. In this class, we review digraphs and trigraphs at the beginning of each session (you'd be surprised how easily they can be forgotten!) and then practise reading a focus book for each session. As with all our other groups, this is a fun and active class! Children need a solid understanding of the book and vocabulary used, to be able to read with appropriate expression. Therefore, Book Bunnies ensures children have a sound understanding of verbs by acting them out and linking unfamiliar words to other texts they have read or their own experiences. We make fluency fun, through activities such as 'Rapid Reading Races', as research suggests that children cannot fully comprehend a text until reading at 90-100 words per minute. As well as working on fluency and expression, we also work with children on prediction and inference skills (comprehension) to best prepare children for their end of Key Stage assessments (Sats tests).
