Reading skills: Samphire
In this lesson, we will start with a quick quiz. We’ll then be examining a short story by Patrick O'Brian called Samphire. We'll be reading the whole narrative this week, but just starting with the first half today. Whilst reading the extract, we will be following our reading strategy routines – we're really becoming expert at these now! You will be provided with prompt questions to help you track your way through the text systematically, thinking about what happens – first / next / then and finally. Feedback will be given at each stage. At the close of the lesson, we will complete the process by considering any ‘big picture’ interpretations and applying the 4 narrative conflicts to your reading. A learning recap quiz will then be available to consolidate today’s learning content.
