Reading Books.

 

We operate a colour banded reading book system.  Whilst no one scheme is used in its entirety, books from the following reading schemes have been banded and incorporated into our reading book system: Oxford Reading Tree, Fireflies, Rigby Rockets.

 

The colour bands progress as follows:

 

Lilac (used in Reception).  These books have no words and are use as pre-readers.

 

Pink - working towards level 1

 

Red - Working towards level 1

 

Yellow - Level 1c

 

Blue - Level 1c/1b

 

Green - Level 1b

 

Orange - Level 1a

 

Turquoise - Level 1a/2c

 

Purple - Level 2c

 

Gold - Level 2b

 

White - Level 2a

 

Lime - Level 3c

 

The banding system does progress beyond this point with grey, burgundy and navy books, however it is our intention to move children off the banding
