We use the Salford Reading Tests to produce a reading age for each child from Year 1 onwards. We re-test the children at the start of every term to ensure texts are matched appropriately to their reading ability. The books we have available in school are banded in colours which are matched to the reading ages. If a child completes the Salford Reading test, they will become a free reader and can choose from a range of chapter books. Children have access to a wide range of text types from reading schemes such as; Project X, Ginn Star, Big Cat, Pelican, Oxford Reading Tree, Rigby Star and Nelson Thorns.
