Ooooh this looks fun…

Dear All,

I know that lots of children (and adults) have been making use of having some extra time at home to get stuck into a good book. I have heard that some have been working their way through Harry Potter whilst others have been enjoying nonfiction books. This year’s Summer Reading Challenge was launched last week. Many children usually take part in this through their local library however due to Covid-19 this year it is online. Do take a look and sign up: https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/.

It is important to make sure that children are reading each day. It can be a combination of you reading to them, and them reading to you. Oxford Owl have access to lots of free online books if you are running short of reading materials. They have books for children at a range of ages not just younger ones. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page

For some children that struggle with reading, reading for pleasure is often difficult. It is possible to access some audio books that are free via https://stories.audible.com/discovery so children can enjoy listening to a book.

Have fun…
