Reaching together... stand firm in your faith, be courageous and strong - 1 Corinthians 16:13




New learning in Yellow level books includes a slightly increased number of words and the story lines include more episodes following a time sequence. Yellow books may include imaginary happenings in framework of familiar experiences and have more variation in sentence structure. The illustrations still support the text quite closely. Non-fiction book still use personal experience and children’s language patterns.


How to support your child reading Yellow level books


Your child is now beginning to read with more confidence. As they read aloud, you can help them by:

  • Giving them time to sound out words they don’t know. If they still struggle, encourage them to try sounding out the whole word first, rather than guessing from the pictures or from the first letter.
  • Giving them time to recognise and correct their own mistakes.
  • Asking them to talk about what’s happening in the book, encouraging them to make links to events on previous pages.
