Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,
We hope you are well and we are all very much looking forward to seeing you back at school at a future date. During this time, it is very important that children continue to read. Reading is excellent for your mental health, fends off boredom and means you can go on an adventure (in your mind) anywhere you like!
As libraries are currently closed and you do not have the usual access to books at school, we thought it may be useful to highlight some websites you could use to access free on-line books and other resources. Please have a look at the resources below if you would like to:
www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize (Some activities in reading comprehension and types of texts. Daily lessons will be published from Monday 20th April)
www.oxfordowl.co.uk (Free eBook library suitable for children aged 3-11 years, sorted into age ranges to make book selection easier)
www.literacytrust.org.uk (The ‘Family Zone’ has useful activities organised by age group)
www.bookstrust.org.uk (Go the the ‘Hometime Hub’ for free online books, videos, games and fun activities)
www.worldofdavidwalliams.com (Every day at 11am David Walliams will be reading stories from his much loved book ‘The World’s Worst Children’)
We hope you keep up with your reading during this time, we miss you and we are looking forward to hearing about the books you enjoyed when we see you again.
