Independent reading activities. Over 120 pages of guided reading activities to save you time and stress! Suitable for children aged 5-6 years old. Year 1 UK. These reading activities are designed for children to be able to complete independently, as part of a guided reading carousel or even as homework.

I have put together over 120 pages of activities that children can do independently whilst still improving their reading skills and their understanding of books and stories.

There is a variety of activities starting with very simple phonics activities for lower abilities. The activities get more advanced for use throughout the school year.

Some of the activities are also linked to the year 1 curriculum eg the lifecycle of a sunflower, seasons and keeping healthy.

All aspects of the year 1 reading National Curriculum covered.Also perfect for lower ability children in year 2 and up.
