Reading at Riverside
The reading scheme in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 is organised into the nationally used Book Bands system, enabling books to be graded according to difficulty and content. Different colours are assigned to each band. Within each band, there is a range of genres, for example fiction, non-fiction and poetry, and a range of different reading schemes. Children take home a reading record book for parents to make comments in when they hear their children read.
The books get progressively harder as children go through the bands.
