1. Pink Flamingo

Dear Parent/Carer 


Your child is now on Reading Band Pink Flamingo.  Thank you for encouraging your child to read.  



  • understand stories make sense and sound right 

  • find the title, turn the pages, start reading  on the left 

  • read each word as they point to them 

  • guess what might happen in a book 

  • use what they know about letter sounds to read words 


  • ask them about the story and talk about the pictures  

  • say ‘Where do we start reading?’ 

  • let them hold the book and turn the pages themselves 

  • if they get stuck ask; ‘what would make sense?’ or say, ‘sound it out’ or ‘go back and try again’
