An informational text about winter, the coldest season of the year, this book ties in with the UK Key Stage 1 National Curriculum. Winter is a book-banded reading book for early readers, carefully levelled at Blue Book Band for guided reading. Illustrated throughout with beautiful photographs, this 227-word non-fiction book is suitable for ages 5 - 6.
Winter featues a longer, less structured text with a more flexible vocabulary. There is variation in sentence patterns and content, little repetition, and longer language patterns. It has a full range of punctuation.
Winter is part of Ransom Reading Stars, a structured programme for children learning to read. The series has fifteen levels: four phonics levels and eleven book band levels (Pink through to Lime).
