Reading varies in every year group and it can be difficult to know how to move your child forward with their reading.

The books that we use at Stamford Green are colour coded. You will find that there are a broad range of books within each colour band and their complexity varies.

We have created this page to share with you a range of videos to demonstrate some reading strategies and ideas.

There will be a selection of videos from different year groups which focus on questioning, inference and understanding as well as using phonic knowledge. There are several discussion points that could be picked up on when reading such as expression, tricky words or speech marks, for example.  It is not necessary to work on every reading skill for every book.

Please click below to find the appropriate book band colour. We hope that you find them helpful.
