Turquoise Band Structure

  • 600-800 words, one story per book with a quiz.
  • There are no specific phonic requirements by this stage; most children will have finished formally learning phonics and they will be automatically applying phonic knowledge as they read.
  • As stories become longer, children may need to use their prediction skills more, including prediction throughout a text and not just at the start.
  • Longer stories give opportunities to develop a plot across a greater number of pages, however the language continues to avoid being too complex or sophisticated.
  • Plots are still mostly simple and linear, without subplots, but there can be a bit more variation in dialogue and a greater range of sentence structures and lengths than at previous levels.
