Be able to respond to questions about the text and illustrations
When a child is reading at level one, a running record is used for assessment purposes. This shows which strategies the child is using to decode unknown words and gives information about their knowledge of sentence structure.
It provides us with the next steps they need in order to progress their reading.
During our assessment weeks, at the end of each half term we use comprehension papers to help to assess the children’s understanding of what they have read. This is as important as how they are delivering the text.
We use these comprehension papers once a child has reached level 2c as well as continuing with running records.
