Banded Reading Schemes are often used to ensure sufficient books are available to support engagement and choice for reading in school and at home. The breadth of reading offered by our fiction and non-fiction banded collections also helps develop students' reading comprehension skills and broadens their knowledge base.

Pink to Orange collections are fully decodable, making them ideal for children to practice and consolidate phonics learning at the end of each taught phase, aiding smooth transitions and promoting continuous growth in reading skills.  

Turquoise to Dark Red collections offer readers a rich reading programme in cumulative steps right up to Year 6 — ideal for gaining progressive fluency.

Purchasing banded reading scheme collections can be a cost-effective way of maximising school budgets, saving money by topping up scheme collections instead of starting from scratch, while still providing students with access to high-quality reading materials.

Buying from Badger Learning means every book will come covered in a FREE protective jacket and will be supplied with FREE colour-coded stickers and a handy colour-coded storage box (one for each book band in the collection.)

Please Note: Occasionally, titles may go out of print, so your final scheme pack might include a replacement title that is similar but not included on the advertised list. If you wish to check before ordering, please call 01553 816 083.
