At Moulton School, we band our reading books according to the Bug Club banding system. Our scheme is made up predominantly of books from the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme and Pearson Scheme.
In Reception to Y2, in order to find the appropriate level to place children on, we give the children a half termly assessment test that assesses the children on the colour band they are currently on. This test is very much centred on their 'understanding' of the text rather than being based on word recognition like the old Benchmarking system predominantly did.

In Y3 to Y6, the children use Accelerated Reader.
