Reading Apps!!

Together as a school we are encouraging children to read at home

as often as they can.

There are plenty of free resources, free ebooks and activities linked to your child's reading to encourage them to read at home on a laptop or computer!

Good recommendations are: Oxfordowl.co.uk - RisingstarsUK.com - Topmarks.co.uk
