APP reading standards file: Joshua (Year 1 low level 1)

Reading notes

In Joshua's school, teachers keep a record book in which anybody in school who has heard a child reading can write brief notes on books read and progress made. Notes on guided reading are only made by the child's class teacher and teaching assistant (TA), related to specific learning objectives. This evidence is used by the class teacher to build up a picture of each child as a reader.
