Colour Coded Books

The children all have a colour banded book they take to and from school. We encourage the children to read three times a week at home and ensure that their diaries are signed. They will be given time within the day to change their reading book.


In Year 5 the children’s comprehension and understanding of a text is a main focus, and therefore children will be expected to do the following before they are moved on to the next colour band:


- Comprehend

- Make predictions

- Make inferences

- Make deductions

- Summarise key points

- Justify actions of characters

- Have an opinion about the text, characters or story line

- Link events in texts to their own experiences

- Discuss the language used and its impact

- Understand the conventions of print and different text type features

- Use quotes from the text to justify points made.
