Reading at home

Continuing home reading is one of the most important things that you can help your children with at home.  While school is closed, we can not change reading books so we have been exploring some online resources that can be used throughout the Primary age range.  Below are some links to resources that can be accessed online so that children can continue to learn to read and enjoy stories at home.  
 
 
Oxford Owl
Oxford Owl is a Free eBook library with some familiar characters that you will recognise from school reading books.  During the school closure period, they have added hundreds more titles to the range so there's sure to be plenty to keep everyone busy.  If you follow the link below, it will take you to the
e-library where you can browse by age range.  
Collins Big Cat
Collins Big Cat is a phonic reading scheme that is suitable for Key Stage One pupils (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2).  This is another free to access e-library.  Follow the link below and select the Teacher Sign in.  Enter the following information:

Then select Collins Big Cat to browse the library of e-books.  
 
Audible
Listening to stories is an important part of learning to read.  The link below is to a library of free to stream audiobooks from Audible.  The books are organised into different sections - you can even listen to the first Harry Potter story in six different languages!
David Walliams
Each day at 11am, David Walliams is reading one of his stories from his World's Worst Children series.  There's also a catch up site so you can listen to the ones you've missed out on so far.
