Are there any teachers out there? I am writing some text for KS1 and using Fry's readability graph to test it. Does anyone know how these reading levels correspond? Also, what average level should I pitch text for 6/7 yr olds? It is designed to be read with an adult present so some tricky animal-related words will be included. Any help v much appreciated! smile

Don't know what Fry's readability graph is I'm afraid. My best suggestion for you would be to get on the Oxford Owl website which lets you read online a variety of Oxford Reading Tree books from each level. It will also tell you which levels are aimed at each year group - that bit isn't an exact science as you will always get stronger and weaker readers, but it should give you a good guide.
