Book Banding

From September 2014 we have re-organised the teaching of reading and reading scheme books through the school.

All the 'scheme' books have been organised into book bands, each one with a different colour.

Your child's reading level will be assessed and then they will be given a band of books from which they can choose which book they would like to read. Books from across all the reading schemes have been put together so they will now have a large choice of books, all of which will be suitable for their ability.

When reading with your child please look at the coloured sticker on the book, not the original printed level number. It will look as if children drop down or go up levels as different schemes work to different numbers!

Below is attached a copy of the Ruishton C of E Primary School book banding leaflet sent home at the beginning of term for further information.
