  • Identify the correct spelling of tricky words within sentences and paragraphs.
  • Up-level a letter, using a range of adjectives, and self-checking for the non-negotiables.
  • Use information to write a fact-file.
  • Listen, enjoy and engage with different stories and texts.
  • Find evidence in our reading texts to answer a variety of questions.
  • Use evidence from our reading to help us make (and justify) predictions.
  • Read for information and use our knowledge of the context of a sentence to help us identify missing words.
  • Find out information from a range of sources and technologies to help us share facts with others.
  • Self- and peer-assess our learning.
