2. Red Tomato

Dear Parent/Carer 


Your child is now on Reading Band Red Tomato.  Thank you for encouraging your child to read.  



  • make sure it makes sense and sounds right  

  • make the reading sound like talking – not like a robot 

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

  • read words they know automatically 

  • re-tell the story including all the main parts 


  • if the reading doesn’t make sense ask them what they can do to fix it 

  • if they get stuck say, ‘go back and try that again’ or ‘sound it out’
