Reading Books - EYFS & KS1

During their time in EYFS and KS1 children will be fully supported by teaching staff and support staff with their reading. Throughout EYFS and KS1 we use a colour coded/banded book system which ensures books are levelled and increase in difficulty.


Appropriate texts for independent reading at home will be given to children based upon their reading ability e.g. word recognition and word comprehension skills. Book bands will be carefully chosen for your child to ensure they choose suitable books to develop their reading.


The class teachers will assess children’s ability regularly and provide suitable opportunity for them to read challenging texts during guided reading.
