1 Reading Targets for Children. These targets are taken from the National Curriculum They have been listed in the Year groups so that teachers can assess the progress that each child has made. Children who are working at Age Related Expectations should have achieved the vast majority of targets for their Year Group by the end of that School Year. Some children may be working on targets from a previous Year Group, whilst others may work on targets from the following Year, once the Age Related Targets have been mastered.
