Sky Rocket into Reading!


In the words of Dr. Seuss,“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” Dr. SeussI Can Read With My Eyes Shut!


Enjoyment of reading and a love of books is encouraged across our school, from Nursery onwards.  Children are immersed in stories and quality texts ensuring that all tastes are catered for and that books are loved by all.  We believe that all books should be enjoyed and therefore choice is at the heart of our reading scheme.  We have worked hard to ensure that our reading scheme meets the needs of all children.


Children may change books as often as they choose.  Our school is open from 8.40am each morning to enable children and parents to choose and change books together.

  • Books are colour banded to reflect reading ability.
  • Children can read as many books within the book band as they wish, and parents are more than welcome to come into school and change reading books, in addition to children and school staff changing books.
  • When children are reading at 95% accuracy (teachers/teaching assistants will assess this in school), they will be moved up to the next book band colour.
  • Children will be given a leaflet explaining what each colour means and will also give tips on how adults/older siblings can help them make further progress. Leaflets are available to download below.


If you would like further information about reading at Rushall or about your individual child’s reading, please do not hesitate to come into school where we will be more than happy to help.

Reading information leaflets for parents are available to download below.  They are linked to each colour of our book banded books and give suggestions and tips to use whilst reading with your child.
