Book banding twilight session – 30th November

November 30, 2017 @ 3:45 pm - 6:00 pm

Need advice or support with book banding?

Reading books are often graded in complexity by reading levels known as book bands. These are the titles by which children learn to read, then go on to develop and practice their reading skills. Each book is graded from lilac to dark red. This colour standardisation has been adopted by many publishers and allows for measured reading progress across a wide range of materials.

In this session, we will provide an overview of the book band market, highlighting major publishers and series and how they can help you deliver the curriculum and develop your schools love of reading . You’ll also get the opportunity to pick our children’s librarians and curriculum specialists brains on the series they would recommend for your school and there will be time for you to browse and buy after the session.

Peters have a dedicated book banded area housing over 12,000 titles across all levels including schemed, non-schemed, fiction and non-fiction titles and are offering 35% off books* to delegates attending a book banding session.

Refreshments will be provided and each delegate will receive a free goodie bag.
