4. Blue Bird

Dear Parent/Carer 


Your child is now on Reading Band Blue Bird.  Thank you for encouraging your child to read.  



  • read longer and more complicated books 

  • be able to say why they like or don’t like the book 

  • take turns to talk about a wide range of stories 

  • notice and fix mistakes quickly 

  • re-read to make it make sense and sound like talking  



  • ask, ‘What’s your favourite part?, ‘Why?’ 

  • say, ‘Check it’, ‘Does it make sense and look right?’ 

  • tell them to go back and try it again to check 

  • show how punctuation changes the way you read
