Every child in KS2 has undertaken an initial ‘Star Reading’ assessment which has provided them with a reading age, reading level and a zone of proximal development (ZPD) range. This ZPD range will allow the children to select appropriate reading books that will be best suited to develop their reading ability and comprehension.
KS1 children will continue to use the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme to develop their reading. After children move from Oxford Reading Tree stage 7, we'll encourage them to extend their reading by using Accelerated reader.
A child’s ZPD range could change during the year depending on their Star Reading assessment, which will be undertaken every half term.
