Paired Reading **WEEKLY TOP TIP**

You will need:

  • Reading material
  • Pairings within your class


How it works:

The concept is simple: pupils will practice the subject specific vocabulary and gain a greater understanding of the context of the source.

Pupils have to read to each other in pairs and practice the specialist language in the text. By doing this, pupils should be a lot more engaged in the content, rather than just listening to us drone on!!!

A really great way to fully engage pupils in the specific text and submerge pupils into the language required to succeed!



  • Give pupils a selection of words from the text that you want them to DEFINE. By reading the text, they may be able to devise a definition!
