Are they set stages for all schools?

Dd was on purple, now on green, my sister mentioned that wasnt far away from being a free reader?! I'm clueless here!

Here you go:

I presume you mean lime rather than green. And yes, although the reading journey sort of starts around this point in many ways grin.

The colours are confusing! Oxford reading tree has different colours for their stages. There are the national curriculum colours, which are the circles on the side of the ORT newer books, and start off pink, red, yellow, blue. My son's school also have their own colour levels and put their own stickers on the si of the books. I concentrate on the national curriculum colours, so i know what to pick him up from the library.
