Reading: What Your Child Should Know By The End Of Year One

Now, the last thing I want to do is stress you anymore than you already are. Learning at home is not going well for many people. Don’t worry about it, be gentle on yourself.


But if you’d like a bit more of an idea about Year One Reading have a look at the following:


YEAR ONE – WHAT YOUR CHILD SHOULD KNOW BY THE END OF THE YEAR IN READING


At the end of Year One your child should be able to:


* Use knowledge of letter sounds to read words.


* Read common words (high frequency words).


* Read text in the correct direction and use punctuation appropriately.


* Read short texts with unknown words.


* Read simple and compound sentences.


* Read aloud with developing fluency.


* Explain that some texts entertain, some inform.


* Make personal connections to the text.


* Explain how different texts are organised.


* Discuss characters and give personal opinions of them.


* Describe characters, setting and events.


* Recall the key ideas.


* Recognise literal and implied meaning.


These are the BIG things Year Ones should know. A Teacher would follow the above list so it would be understandable that you may have questions. If you’d like any help, please contact me at:

Don’t attempt ALL of these things at once! I’d pick one thing and run with that.


Happy Reading!
Leigh
