Cambridge Reading Adventures: Orange Band Reader Pack (10)



Bring stories from around the world into your classroom with Cambridge Reading Adventures, our primary reading scheme for ages 4 to 12. Children explore the seas with Sinbad, marvel at the wonders of the sky above us and unearth the secrets of the ice age with this exciting series.

Orange Band stories are longer than in previous bands, featuring more events
and greater complexity.
• Illustrations provide support for just one aspect of the story per page
• Sentence structures become more complex, with some use of the conditional tense (e.g. sentences that speculate what could happen, normally containing the word ‘if’)
• Children will recognise a large number of the high-frequency words used in this band, helping them become fluent and develop their understanding
• High-frequency words in each book are no longer specified from Orange Band onwards


Every reader includes detailed teaching notes on the inside back cover to help you deliver lessons that inspire a love of reading. These include:

• Full guidance for successful guided reading, including suggestions for supporting phonics, grammar, comprehension and new vocabulary
• Follow-up activities that help your learners get creative with the stories
• Cross-curricular links provided to other subjects, including specific links to the Cambridge Primary English curriculum framework, International Primary Curriculum and IB Primary Years Programme

• Key book details – word count, links to other curricula, high-frequency words and new vocabulary
