Our Reading Scheme

At Sherwood Park, all our reading books are colour banded.  Your child will be given a colour band to choose their home reading book from which will help to ensure that the book they select is at the appropriate reading level for them. Each coloured book band is further sub-levelled to ensure that there is clear progression within each coloured band. A wide range of reading schemes, such as Jelly and Bean, Phonics Bug, Project X, Songbirds and Traditional Tales, are included in each coloured band. This is to ensure that the children experience a range of stories, text types and illustrations. To continue to embed and promote a love of reading throughout the school, the children in EYFS and Key Stage 1 are also encouraged to take home a library book that they can borrow from their class library.

Once children move beyond Lime book band, they can have a free choice of books from their class library (‘Free Reader’). Those children working in Key Stage 2 who are working below age expectations will be supported through interventions and schemes appropriate to the child's needs. This includes a continuation of scheme books beyond Lime book band, as well as other schemes aimed at supporting older children with their reading skills.
