Oldest son just started year 3. They followed the Oxford reading tree style of reading

When he finished year 2 he was on stage 14 or 15.

Today his first day in year 3 he has xkme home with stage 12. This one is more wordy as he is in Upper school now but surely he should go up not not down.

His reading age is 10 years and 7 months when last measured

Should i ask school or would that be unreasonable

If it’s more wordy, perhaps it’s a different part of the ORS which runs parallel.

Also, the new class teacher will be doing their own assessment of their capabilities.

They have just gone back after 6 weeks off where some kids won't have read a single word. I would give it a few weeks.

Has he read over the holidays? Lots of children have a dip after the school holiday.

How was the reading when you listened to him?

DD2 came home really upset (she's Autistic and was really struggling with all the changes anyway and this tipped her over the edge emotionally that day) that her new teacher had given her a lower band book last week... explained it was just a case of them getting them some form of "reading book" sent home asap to get started on things.
Today - teacher's heard her read today and got her back on a more correct book band. First couple of days of term it's just a case of making sure everyone has "a book" (for those kids who don't have many at home it might be the only thing they get to read) before refining it as they get through the list hearing kids.

He's read loads. Dog man, comics and a few Roald Dahl books

The teacher will adjust as necessary, its only like the first day or 2!

But the teacher doesn't know that. Reading is reading. Reading a book on a slightly lower book band is not going to have any impact in the long run.

It's annoying but the same thing happens every year with mine too - it'll spur him on at school to show he can do more hopefully.
