5 thoughts on “Reading Book Colour Bands

    1. Thank you for your comment. The black band books are older versions which are equivalent to the Orange Band books. This means your child’s reading level is working towards Level 2.

  1. My child is in year 1, he will be having year 1 phonics spelling check test after 2 weeks. Can I kindly ask if that would be ‘reading words’ or ‘writing words’ or both?

    Many thanks,


    1. The check comprises a list of 40 words and non-words which the child will read one-to-one with a teacher. So there’s no writing – just reading. (AC)
