EXS – is the National Curriculum Expected Standard. If your child is reading this colour book band book by the end of the year indicated, they are on track for meeting the year group curriculum expectations.

 

Please note: Once your child can confidently and fluently read and answer a range of questions based on a silver sticker book, they may become free readers and read books of their own choice. Suggested texts that would be suitable for free readers can be found on each of the classes pages on the website (the 100 books to read in year… )
