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 graphemephoneme 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 a familiar book that is read to them, the pupil can:

• answer questions in discussion with the teacher and make simple inferences.

 

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 most words accurately without overt sounding and blending, and sufficiently fluently to allow them to focus on their understanding rather than on decoding individual words.

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

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

• check it makes sense to them, correcting any inaccurate reading.

• answer questions and make some inferences.

• explain what has happened so far in what they have read.

 

Working at greater depth within the expected standard

The pupil can, in a book they are reading independently:

• make inferences.

• make a plausible prediction about 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.
