  • Love these! We're looking at moving to whole class reading instead of guided reading and these would be ideal to use for that. I'd love to see them linked to year 2 science topics and also Africa, London, Castles and maybe some poems!

    • Good afternoon Mollness,

      Thanks for your comment, it's great to hear from you!
      I'm sure I can help! Could you provide a few more details about what sorted of 60-Second readers for Year 2 that you would like? Are there any particular topics you would like them to cover?
      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

Use this fabulous set of space themed activity cards to access your KS1 pupils' fluency in reading. Each 60-second reading card contains around 90 words (the expected reading word count within one minute for a year 2 child as stated in the DfE's 2016 Interim Teacher Assessment Framework). Each card also includes a number of comprehension questions to assess a child's depth of understanding of what has been read.
