Reading at Home

Unfortunately we are unable to change home reading books in school at the moment, due to social distancing regulations. However there are many other reading opportunities to be found online and at home. It is very important that children continue to read every day and children should be encouraged to read for pleasure, choosing their own reading wherever possible.

Exciting stories to read when you have finished your reading book....

Additional reading and audio books.


Don't forget to keep active and enjoy exercise every day whilst at home.

There are lots of resources and ideas for children to access on the PE webpage.
