Literary Leaves

View Samples

Literary Leaves are book-based comprehension planning resources for Y2-Y6 designed to support teachers with the teaching of reading, using whole books, rather than extracts. They can be used in whole-class or guided reading sessions.

Each Literary Leaf has 10-20 session notes, with each session focusing on skills from the Programme of Study, so that children have the opportunity to secure them deeply. In many cases the same question stem is repeated to ensure teachers can model how to answer questions, before the children  apply it themselves.

Literary leaves are not intended to replace teachers' own planning but to support them to ask the right questions at the right time, and plan for activities that help children to become critical readers.
