Reading

 

Working towards the expected standard The pupil can:

• read accurately by blending the sounds in words that contain the common

graphemes for all 40+ phonemes*

• read accurately some words of two or more syllables that contain the same

grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs)*

• read many common exception words.*

In a book closely matched to the GPCs as above, the pupil can:

• read aloud many words quickly and accurately without overt sounding and blending

• sound out many unfamiliar words accurately.

In discussion with the teacher, the pupil can:

• answer questions and make inferences on the basis of what is being said and done

in a familiar book that is read to them.

 

Working at the expected standard The pupil can:

• read accurately most words of two or more syllables

• read most words containing common suffixes*

• read most common exception words.*

In age-appropriate books, the pupil can:

• read words accurately and fluently without overt sounding and blending, e.g. at

over 90 words per minute

• sound out most unfamiliar words accurately, without undue hesitation.

In a familiar book that they can already read accurately and fluently, the pupil can:

• check it makes sense to them

• answer questions and make some inferences on the basis of what is being said

and done.

 

Working at greater depth within the expected standard The pupil can, in a book they are reading independently:

• make inferences on the basis of what is said and done

• predict what might happen on the basis of what has been read so far

• make links between the book they are reading and other books they have read.
