Reading comprehension cards

Can anyone (maybe a teacher?) shed some light on how reading comprehension cards are best used? DD1 says she has to work her way through all the boxes (different colours) and each set of colours within each box. She's a bit fed up, though apparently she has a couple of times been allowed to skip a few colours in a box when she's been whizzing through them accurately.

I know that it's not good practice in reading to have to read every book in a given bookband, is that the same for comprehension schemes or is there value in working your way through systematically?

Never heard of reading comp. card. Isn't that something unique to your dc's school?

No idea - apparently red box, blue box and green box and (in Y6) yellow box. Within the boxes they have very weird colours (peach and indigo). Does that give any clues?

Had a Google - could be the Prim-Ed comprehension box, from her description. This:
