Individual reading books are sorted into their book band colours and have a coloured sticker indicating the book band level. Our main reading scheme for individual readers is 'Oxford Reading Tree,' these books have been starred so they are easy to identify and are kept at the front of each coloured book box. These are the books that the children read first to ensure progression. After the children are confident with reading our 'star readers' then they can move onto the books at the back of the book box which are our breadth readers. These books are a mixture of reading schemes.
The children have the opportunity to change their individual reading book on a daily basis. Each child has a record sheet of books that they have read for each colour band. These records will be kept throughout their time at Meredith to show their progress in reading. Each class teacher will monitor the coloured reading record sheets to track the child’s reading at home.
