Reading Skills – Information and tips!

3

When reading, there are a number of skills that the children need to understand and be able to call upon.

 

These used to be called AF (assessment foci) and mean the following:

 

AF1 – Reading fluently

 

AF2 – Retrieval questions

– Ask the children a question where the answer is located in the text.

– Children need to identify key information in the questions and then locate answers that are literally in the text.

 

AF3 – Inference and deduction

– Children have to ‘read between the lines’ and work something out based on events or information that is not literally written in the text.

– Children need to identify key information in the questions and then locate information that matches the subject.

 

AF4 – Text structure and organisation

 

Rest to follow as they are covered in guided reading lessons.
