Changes to Reading

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to inform you that we will be changing the way that we assign children their reading books. Children will now be allocated reading books by a ‘stage’, and not a colour.

We have chosen to do this in an effort to simplify the process and also prevent trickier books being mixed in with those that are easier to decode.

As you can see in the chart below, an estimation is given of the stage your child may be allocated, in relation to the book colour they already read. However, the teacher will use their professional judgement to allocate your child’s books, as some colours are in a range of stages.

The stage is easy to find on the back of the Oxford Reading Tree books and the stages also corresponds with our other Big Cat and Firefly books.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact Miss Beth, who is our Reading Coordinator, at: bmiddleton@vhprimary.com
