Who Are the Totally Pawsome Reading Gang?
The Totally Pawsome Reading Gang are dog characters featured in a specialist collection of resources aimed at developing essential reading skills within Classic English (available with a Core membership) and Twinkl Boost (available with an Ultimate membership).
Each dog character is a visual representation of a ‘reading content domain’: a set of reading assessment aims from the DfE that children are tested against at the end of KS1 and KS2 in SAT assessments. They link very closely to the National Curriculum 2014 reading objectives.
These are the KS1 reading content domains and their associated Totally Pawsome character :

The Totally Pawsome Reading Gang now feature in hundreds of Twinkl resources designed to teach and practise individual reading comprehension skills, which includes:

- Focused Reading Skills Packs, which practise each skill in isolation, for KS1 and KS2;
