What is it?

A robust guided reading programme that helps children master fluency and deepen comprehension, giving you everything you need to help them.

What’s in it?

Bug Club Guided combines beautiful print books and eBooks that your children will want to read, plus:

  • pupil workbooks
  • teachers cards
  • an online teacher toolkit
  • and professional development courses shown to increase effectiveness of materials.

How does it work?

Guided Reading is split into KS1/P1-3 and KS2/P4-7, with each approached differently to better suit the stages of your children’s development.

At KS1/P1-3:

  • Guided Reading is centred around fantastic books that your children will want to read
  • Makes use of easy-to-use teacher cards to ease the burden on your preparation
  • Guided reading cards for KS1/P1-3 cover multiple sessions with you, going into depth with each text and asking questions that will challenge and grow your children’s comprehension skills
  • Plus, there are accompanying photocopiable activities around each title to extend learning

At KS2/P4-7, Guided Reading is built on a robust, three question approach:

  1. The looking question: literal comprehension
  2. The clue question: making connections and inferences to further comprehension
  3. The thinking question: going beyond the text, connecting text to self and text to world to access deep comprehension.

The approach follows a structured and clearly defined teaching cycle with meaningful activities to support an in-depth and consistent focus on comprehension.
