How does Bug Club Guided Reading work?

Guided Reading is broken into KS1/P1-3 and KS2/P4-7 packages, with each approached differently to better suit the stage of your children’s development.


KS1 / P1-3

At this level, Guided Reading is centred around fantastic books that your children will want to read, and easy-to-use teacher cards to ease the burden on your preparation.

Each guided reading card for KS1/P1-3 covers multiple sessions with you, going into depth with each text and asking questions that will challenge and grow your children’s comprehension skills.

Plus, there are accompanying photocopiable activities around each title to extend learning.


KS2 / P4-7

At this level, Guided Reading is built on a robust, three question approach.

  1. The looking question: literal comprehension
  2. The clue question: making connections and inferences to further comprehension
  3. The thinking question: going beyond the text, connecting text to self and text to world to access deep comprehension.

The approach follows a structured and clearly defined teaching cycle with meaningful activities to support an in-depth and consistent focus on comprehension.
