Children progress through our reading levels at their own pace and books are assigned to them depending on their reading and comprehension ability. Understanding what they read is just as important as the reading itself.
Below is a chart showing how children progress through the reading levels or book bands. This is linked to their phonic ability. The shaded sections for each year group indicate the range of 'expected' attainment.
If children are below the expected range we will put support in place to ensure they can move forward with their learning.
|Colour band||Reading Recovery Level||Phonic Phase Approx||Yr R||Yr 1||Yr 2||Level|
|Yellow||6,7,8||Phase 3/4||1 emerging low|
|Blue||9,10,11||Phase 4/5||1 emerging high|
|Green||12,13,14||Phase 5||year 1 expected low|
|Orange||15,16||Phase 5/6||year 1 expected high|
|Turquoise||17,18||Phase 5/6||year 2 emerging low|
|Purple||19,20||Phase 6||year 2 emerging high/ year 1 exceeding|
|Gold||21,22||Phase 6||year 2 expected low|
|White||23,24||year 2 expected high|
|Lime||year 2 exceeding|
