How to support reading at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 Below are instructions on how you can access a variety of high quality texts online to vary your child's reading.  These books have been allocated to your child by their class teacher and are closely matched to their current reading level.  After each book, the children are asked a variety of questions to check their understanding.  Teacher can then check these responses accordingly and edit the level of reading books that the children are accessing.  We hope these texts give you a bit of variety during these difficult times and we hope that the children enjoy reading them.
