  • This is a fab resource.  Please could it be produced with no word count as it is proving distracting for the children.

    • Hey there EmmaTZ,
      We now have KS2 versions of our 60 second reads available here: http://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/ks2-english/ks2-reading/60-second-reads-reading-english-key-stage-2. We will be adding more for both KS1 and KS2 in due course so please do keep checking back. Have a lovely day! :)

  • Wow! I've just found these, and love the concept. I think I'll print a copy of each set and keep some texts for assessment purposes and use some as independent activities for early finishers. Another innovative idea, Twinkl. Well done!

    • Hi natashadarke,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :) These numbers are the cumulative word count for each line of text. If you take a look at the Adult Guidance within the pack, this will give you some more information on how to use these lovely resources :)

    • Good morning scott_su,
      Thank you so much for getting in touch! It's lovely to hear from you :) We are indeed planning on creating more versions of these for KS2 and will be working on them over the summer. Watch this space! Have a lovely day :)

Use this dynamic set of dinosaur-themed activity cards to assess 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.
