Blue Band Structure

  • 150-200 words, one story per book with a quiz.
  • Words covering the phonic patterns introduced at earlier levels, plus blending two or three consonants at the beginning, middle or end of words (e.g. stick, strap, stamping, wasp). 
  • Up to three lines of text per page. Sentence structures can now be more varied than at earlier levels, though still simple and speechlike.
  • There is beginning to be more variety in the types of story included, with scope for some that are less familiar in setting.
