Cambridge Reading Adventures: Blue Band Reader Pack (13)



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.

Blue Band stories become slightly more complex than Yellow Band, with several characters and episodes within the story to help develop comprehension.
• Greater variation in sentence patterns helps students self-correct independently
• Vocabulary in non-fiction titles becomes more technically specific
• Less common words are supported by illustrations, providing opportunities to build word- reading power and knowledge of spelling patterns in English


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
• Learning outcomes from reading the text
