Respect, Aspire, Achieve

In our school, whatever the challenge,

we aim high with God in our hearts



As part of our Guided Reading sessions this term we will be reading 'Around the World in Eighty Days,'

based on the story by Jules Verne.


When your child is reading, it is good to ask them different types of questions about their book. We call these DIAL questions:

D - Deductive questions (drawing conclusions from information/clues in the text - detective!)

I - Inferential questions (reading between the lines and going beyond the information given)

A - Authorial questions (thinking about what the author's purpose was, why they chose a particular way of saying something )

L - Literal questions (repeating directly, or in their own words, something that it says in the text).
