Reading Support

Dear Parents & Carers

To help support your child with their reading during the school closures and to ensure they have access to a range of books, we have created this  page offering a selection of great websites.  

The websites below will provide a range of exciting, age appropriate books for your child to read for free! All books on these sites can be accessed via computer and are tablet friendly. Most sites include books that will read aloud to the children also.

All children have access to Reading Eggspress via the Reading Eggs App. Once the children log in, they can select the ‘Reading Eggspress’ option and they can access the library. They can browse the library and books can be filtered by reading age to ensure they are appropriate. There is also an option to complete a quiz to test their comprehension.

 

Teachers have set up class accounts on this American site, which offers free access to over 40,000 books, videos and audiobooks! To log in, use the student login provided by the class teacher. Again, books can be selected by genre and reading age and quizzes are offered with some books.

Be aware that this site will only allow access to books during school hours.

 

Parents and carers can sign up for a free account offering access to a range of e-books, again filtered by reading age.

 

Children's best sellling author and comedian David Walliams has recently announced that he will be releasing a free audio story taken from one of his books. Stories will be released daily  on his website for the next 30 days! 
 

Halton's e-book service is still available. Sign up to create an account and gain access to thousands of brilliant books. 

 

We hope that these websites provide you and your child with enough access to a wide range of books to read together and to enjoy. Daily reading will not only play a huge role in your child’s learning but it is a great way to relax, escape and transport you and your loved ones to new places during this difficult time.

We hope this helps and thank you for your continued support.
