Our Reading Scheme

Our Reading Scheme
At Yealmpstone Farm Primary School we use a book bands system to grade our reading books when children first learn to read. This is a system which is used in schools across the U.K. Each book band has a colour and means that we can use a range of books from different schemes and publishers and know with confidence that children are on the right level book. Sometimes a publisher will grade their own scheme with numbers or colours, so we label all our books with stickers in the correct book band colour to avoid any confusion.

We have a wide range of books from various schemes and our books support children's phonics skills so that they are reading the sounds that they are learning in the classroom.
