Gold Band Structure

  • No specific phonic structure to these books, as children should be able to work out most reasonably common words without difficulty.
  • Vocabulary choices are appropriate to this young readership and not too complex or demanding.
  • Plots and characters are still mostly clear and straightforward to follow. There are still plenty of opportunities for prediction, discussion and thinking about the story.
  • A wider range of sentence structures can be used – still mostly simple and speech-like, but with some that are longer/multi-clause.
  • Plots are still straightforward and linear, but they may be developed over more pages or require a bit more thought to understand.
  • Story is split into simple chapters,
