Term 4 Reading 

For reading this term there will be three groups working inside the Korimako hub.  The first group, Roberland, which is taken by Miss Roberts and Mr Sutherland will be focussing on reading text passages that enable the students to understand the author's purpose, what the author is saying, understanding the structure and what the author is doing with the words. The second group will be taken by Miss Burtenshaw and this group will be focussing on how a series of chapters fits together to provide the overall structure of a novel and how characters respond to different challenges. The third group will be taken by Mr. Cook and this group will be focussing on stories written in the form of diaries.  They will be looking at how the author has written them so it gives the reader enough information and engages them.   The specific learning outcomes for all Korimako students this term will be:

  1. Identify key words, topic sentence and key questions in a text
  2. Can evaluate information across a few texts
  3. Can skim and scan to find the main ideas
  4. Can summarise the main ideas in a text

Term 3 Reading: Varied Text

The Learning Pathways for the term include:
  • I can infer - that is, I make conclusions based on information not directly stated in the text
  • I can find the meaning of unknown vocabulary
  • I can summarise the main ideas in a text
  • I can decode fluently and accurately
  • I can remember what I have read over a number of days and across different texts
  • I can apply my knowledge of how words work and use the text or illustrations to help me understand

Book Group - the students will be going on a virtual field trip via Learnz called “Our Primary Industries,” it will link into the food systems and where humans get food from and how we know it is safe to eat.

Roberland Group -  Students will be participating in Guided Reading and Novel Study sessions with a focus inferring and summarising.  Additional word work will include daily vocabulary and literacy skill practice. The novels they will be using at 'Wonder' and 'The World's Worst Children'.

Term 2 Reading: Varied Text 

Students will be reading a variety of texts depending on their interests and needs.
Their learning pathways will include:
- selects and reads texts for enjoyment and personal fulfillment;
 – recognises and understands the connections between oral, written, and visual language;
 – integrates sources of information and prior knowledge with developing confidence to make sense of increasingly varied and complex texts;
– selects and uses a range of processing and comprehension strategies with growing understanding and confidence;
 – thinks critically about texts with developing confidence;
 – monitors, self-evaluates, and describes progress with growing confidence.

BOOK Reading Group (Combination of Mr Cook and Miss Burtenshaw)

This term Mr Cook and Miss Burtenshaw will be parallel teaching which means both groups will be learning about the same topic - using the same resources and using the same resources. We have decide that the group will be going on a virtual field trip via the website LEARNZ . The group will be looking at O TU WHAREKAI this is a trip to a Wetland that is located near the start of the Rangitata River. We have decide to look at this because it links very closely to our inquiry topic of Ecology Systems.

ROBERLAND Reading Group (Combination of Miss Roberts and Mr Sutherland)

The Roberland students have been split into groups depending on their interests. We have two groups that are reading about Animals, one group that is reading about Sport and one group that will be working on Plays. The reasoning behind this is that students are more engaged in reading when they are reading about a topic that they are passionate about.

 Term 1 Reading: Linked to Systems (where possible) 

Students will be developing their reading skills by reading texts about systems.
Their learning pathways will include:
• I can monitor and adjust my reading for accuracy and sense when I get stuck.
• I can decode texts fluently and accurately, using a range of strategies.
• I can decode all texts automatically.
