Reading during Lockdown
One of the hardest subjects to teach via online services is reading... we can't swap books, teachers can't listen to children read frequently and children have no access to our fabulous range of individual reading books. However, there is still lots we can do to promote and develop children's reading skills.
Oxford Reading Tree Website
This website is FANTASTIC. It provides books for all bookbands online, so the children can continue to read at home. The process of reading on this website is also really enjoyable (especially for younger children!) as you can 'turn the page' and there's an option for the computer to read the words outloud too.
Every class at Buglawton has access to this service via a log in:
