Year 4 Reading Comprehension - Spring Term

4 Resource Packs

About the theme

For the spring term, the theme is all about working together; how communicating and collaborating can help to solve problems and lead to results that are more impressive than could be achieved by an individual. Resources to support children in making connections between the texts can be found in the ‘pulling it all together’ pack, as can a suggested list of books also linked to the theme, which could be read as a class.

Pulling it all together

Once you have gone through all three texts with pupils, establishing familiarity and understanding with each, you can use these additional resources to help children engage with them thematically, making links between the texts, and to others they may have read or heard of. A suggested list of books for class reading, linked to the unit theme, is also included.
