Early Learning Goals for Reading


Children read and understand simple sentences. They use phonic knowledge to decode regular words and read them aloud accurately. They also read some common, irregular words. They demonstrate understanding when talking with others about what they have read.


Children can read phonically regular words of more than 1 syllable as well as many irregular but high frequency words. They use phonic, semantic and syntactic knowledge to understand unfamiliar vocabulary. They can describe the main events in the stories they have read.


Supporting Your Child

Read different types of books and talk about them with your child.

Hear your child read daily and practise their word card when they have started the scheme.
