KS1 SATs (Reading tasks and tests)
The DfE states that:
Teaching should ensure that work in 'speaking and listening', 'reading' and 'writing' is integrated. In English, during key stage 1 pupils learn to speak confidently and listen to what others have to say. They begin to read and write independently and with enthusiasm.

They focus on words and sentences and how they fit into whole texts. They work out the meaning of straightforward texts and say why they like them or do not like them. The programme of study for English and the National Literacy Strategy Framework for teaching are closely related. The framework provides a detailed basis for implementing the statutory requirements of the programmes of study for reading and writing.
