Child friendly reading targets for the new curriculum

The biggest change of new curriculum for reading was the removal of the 7 previous assessment foci and the introduction of two new reading content domains: comprehension and word.  Our child friendly reading targets for the new 2014 curriculum reflect this change and present the primary reading curriculum in easy-to-understand language for pupils, parents and teachers.

Each year group’s reading targets (Y1 to Y6) have been written in child-friendly language by an expert panel of primary educators – to ensure coverage in the new National Curriculum. The Egyptian pyramid theme is sure to appeal to primary pupils – both boys and girls. Each reading target is presented in a box, with three smaller boxes so teachers can indicate when a target is met. These boxes can also signify “beginning”, “developing” or “secure” – if your school uses that system. View a Sample

Help parents help their children read better

With these child friendly reading targets maps, parents will know exactly what the age-related expectations are in reading. They will know exactly what is expected of each year group and will be able to help their child progress, step-by-step. In addition, they will be able to ask meaningful, targeted questions – rather than ask the children to retell what they have just read.
