Five or 10 minutes reading each evening will help your child become a much more proficient reader - and it's fun too! Reading a familiar book is good for confidence, and learning to read with fluency and expression.
Our teachers have noticed improvements in the reading skills of children who are reading at home more regularly. Thank you to all the parents who are helping to instil a love of reading!
Book Levels and Colour Bands
At Glenfrome Primary School all our reading books are colour banded according to their level of reading difficulty. Your child will be given a colour band and book level to choose from which will help to ensure that the book they select is at the right reading level. Every colour band includes books from a range of reading schemes so that they will experience a range of stories, text types and illustrations. Once they become proficient at one level, by reading a wide range of books within it, they will move onto the next. Therefore, the more practise they get, the better they get and the quicker they will progress through the levels!
