  11. 11. Comprehension <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>We use these comprehension papers once a child has reached level 2c as well as continuing with running records. </li></ul>
