Reading at Home - resources and tips.

Top Tips for Reading with Your Child 


We've put together a range of reading resources which we hope will help you through this unusual time. There's books to share, access to digital libraries with reading books to suit every reader, links to the publishers of the reading books we use in school, audio books, e-books as well as  authors & illustrators reading & drawing from their own work. We'll add to the page when new & interesting things come out. And below is reminder of our top tips to enjoying reading at home.  


  • Read for pleasure - keep it light & fun
  • Share books together – read to each other & make sure you all feel involved.
  • Stop and chat about the story/content, what you notice, how it makes you feel, what it makes you think about.
  • Enjoy picture books – great for beginner readers but illustrated books help developing and older readers too.
  • Re-read books you’ve already got – familiarity helps confidence
  • Encourage confident readers to enjoy a range of authors, and types of books.
