Fourth Class continue to enjoy TSI. Pupils are reading together in small groups. Each pupil has a special role within the group and reading together helps everyone to understand and enjoy the books better. Pupils are developing great maturity, teamwork and independence as they work together in their groups.
Over the past eight weeks, Fourth Class have worked in their TSI groups independently applying comprehension strategies, developing skills such as working in groups, working in different roles and giving effective feedback. All children were trained in the roles of Leader, Questioner and Strategist and got to read a wide variety of reading material at their own pace. TSI was an extremely successful initiative and was thoroughly enjoyed by the pupils.......................
