Book band colours typically follow a progression from easiest to most difficult, though there can be slight variations between publishers with year group correlations. Here's a common sequence:

  • Lime Book Band (Expected Year 3, Aged 7–8): More challenging vocabulary and concepts.
  • Brown/Grey Book Band (Expected Year 3/Year 4, Aged 8–9): Chapter books with a wider range of genres and themes.
  • Dark Blue Book Band (Expected Year 5, Aged 9–10): More complex sentence structures and advanced vocabulary.
  • Dark Red/Black Book Band (Expected/Confident Year 6, Aged 10–11): These represent the highest levels for confident readers, featuring challenging vocabulary, complex themes, and minimal to no illustrations.

Take a look at our Book Bands Chart to see details of emerging, expected and confident exceeding levels for each age and year group. Children will work through the levels during the school year so it’s important not to worry about gaining each level but to promote reading enjoyment and discuss any concerns with their teacher.
