Help children build their vocabulary with this Description Pairs Game to Support the Delivery of the 2021 Reading Framework. Understanding vocabulary is vital for comprehension and so also for wider learning and progress.
The Reading Framework guidance is for primary schools, initial teacher training (ITT) partnerships, specialist provision and others in England. It focuses on the early stages of teaching reading. Its key objective is to help schools meet their expectations around early reading as set out in the national curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework. It also aligns with Ofsted’s Education Inspection Framework.
