Exciting news for home reading!

To support your child with reading at home, we have subscribed to the Oxford Owl eBook Library giving access to more than 500 ebooks for use across the age range from Reception to Year 6.

Over the next week or so, your child’s teacher will be in touch with details of how to log in to the library and what your child will be expected to do to ensure that they continue to develop their reading skills whilst learning at home.

Please see the leaflet for more information. If you have any further questions, please contact the class teacher in the usual way.
