Reading whilst school is closed
As school closed, your child was sent home with two reading books. We had to change our original plan of our library in the conservatory due to the further lockdown rules in our community. As you will no longer be able to change your books at school as we had originally thought, we have included a few links below of websites we are aware of to help you keep up with reading during the home schooling period.
Visit home.oxfordowl.co.uk for lots of ebooks to read ranging from Reception level to Year 6. Please record the books you have read in your child's reading diary.
Visit www.collins.co.uk/pages/support-learning-at-home for the big cat books. The only Big Cat ebooks available at the moment are lime books for Year 2/KS2 but all of the lime titles are there. There are also lots of lower book bands for KS1 there available too. They do not match our kS1 RWI reading scheme in school but are still great books for you to read.
David Walliams is also releasing an audio book each day. Visit www.worldofdavidwalliams.com to find these.
Audible has also made its service for children's books free too.
Axel Sheffler has released a book which can be downloaded here which explains all about coronavirus in a child friendly way. It is a free resource and can be accessed on screen.
Axel Scheffler said: "I think it is extremely important for children and families to have access to good and reliable information in this unprecedented crisis, and I hope that the popularity of the books I've done with Julia Donaldson will ensure that this digital book will reach many children who are now slightly older, but might still remember our picture books."
We will keep you updated as any other free services come to our attention.
Happy reading and stay safe.
