Hayfield Cross has a wide range of books from lots of different providers. Our Banding follows the Big Cats system.

For a child to change their reading book on book changing days, they need to have read each book twice and had it signed by an adult in their reading diaries. The children are encouraged to choose their own reading books. Therefore, they may choose the same book more than once. This is OK and promotes a love of reading, it will also help to improve their comprehension.

For a child to move up to the next book band, they need to complete a book band assessment. This focuses on the comprehension of their reading rather than just on their recognition of words.
