White Band Structure

  • No specific phonic structure to these books, as children should be able to work out most reasonably common words without difficulty.
  • Vocab choices are appropriate to this young readership and not too complex or demanding
  • More scope for complex inference creeping in – e.g. sometimes the reader may need to read between the lines, or may know something the characters do not, or the author may set up unusual twist or surprise ending.
  • Stories are slightly longer and more complex than before and bring in knowledge from outside the story in order to understand it.
  • As above, though stories are becoming more varied in plot as well as sentence structure, sometimes including some more literary or stylised language where appropriate.
