We Help Year 5 and 6 students Achieve Greater Depth on their SATs reading results.

For your child, reading is more than just knowing words; it's about mastering the art of comprehension. Many students face challenges in grasping the nuances of questions and text. To excel in their SATs, your child must read swiftly, decode question types, understand the query's intent, and meet answer expectations. We're here to help them achieve 'Greater Depth' in their SATs results by nurturing these essential skills.

Program Overview

Our SATs reading program includes 3 x 45 min lessons a week, with a focus on four key components.

Fluency, Vocabulary, Literal Comprehension, Inferential Comprehension

We use the same text for a week, so that each lesson can have a focus on a new key area.

Example Week

Lesson 1 (Fluency /Vocabulary)

Fluency:

(Speed Reading) Students have 1 minute to read as much of the text as possible. Students have a go at summarising the text based on what they remember from that first read.

(Model Reading) The tutor models reading the first paragraph. Students critique the tutor based on their intonation, speed, fluency, etc. 

(Group Reading) The groups reads the text together.

(Independent Reading) Each student in the group, practises reading different parts of the text out loud independently focusing on fluency.

Vocabulary:

(Practise) Students play a number of word games, focused on understanding and identifying the meaning of different words in context, looking at synonyms (words that mean the same), antonyms (words that mean the opposite) and words that might fit in context.

(Independent Review) stns answer SATs style questions related to vocabulary. Eg. Find a copy one word from the text that means ...

Lesson 2 (Literal Comprehension)

Fluency:

(Group Reading) The groups reads the text together, with a focus on fluency.

Skim and Scan Technique:

Students play 'find the word' game to practise the skim and scan technique.

Fact Finding:

Students find 5 pieces of information that is in the text, and create questions for this information using the sentence stems. Students take it in turns to verbally answer each others questions, indicating where in the text they found the information they needed.

Independent Review:

Students practise answering SATs style literal comprehension questions using skim and scan technique.

Lesson 3 (Inferential Comprehension / Text Structure)

Fluency:

(Group Reading) The groups reads the text together, with a focus on fluency.

Structure:

Provide students with only the first sentence from each paragraph. Students need to match each paragraph with what the paragraph is about.

Inferential Comprehension:

Students participate in a range of activities that allow them to begin to use their own understanding of the word, to help them make meaning of a text.

For example: What job might a character have if they come home from work everyday with dirty clothes? They might work on a farm, as a tradesperson, etc.

A character is crying. They could be happy tears, sad tears, angry tears - What other evidence is there in the text that helps us determine what they are feeling? Have they just won something? (happy tears) Have they had a fight with someone? (angry tears / sad tears) Have they lost something? (Sad tears).

Independent Review:

Students practise answering SATs style inferential comprehension questions using evidence from the text to support their answers.

I love the plans offered by Chilli Tutoring. My son doesn’t just get a lesson but so many extras to help support him. It’s exactly what he needed as with past tutors, one lesson a week just wasn’t helping as much as we would have liked. Looking forward to seeing my sons continued progress.
