3. Yellow Sunflower

Dear Parent/Carer 


Your child is now on Reading Band Yellow Sunflower.  Thank you for encouraging your child to read.  



  • listen to their reading, notice mistakes and correct  

  • use their eyes to follow the sentence  

  • make the reading sound interesting using punctuation 

  • relate the story to own experiences and other stories 

  • retell the story in detail 


  • say, ‘You said ... Did that sound right? Fix it!’ 

  • show different ways to read new words: what word would fit, sound it out, chunk it – play/ing, to/day  

  • ask, ‘What might happen next?’ 

  • let them read the book again to make it sound smooth
