Audio-Books and Online Stories

We love reading! It's tricky though when you don't have your school books or access to the library.


Lots of parents have got in touch asking for help with keeping their younger children reading at home, don't forget there are Daily Phonics lessons and Nessy (a website) too which will help. Mrs Hall also has set a reading challenge every week - she will but photos/work on the website each week which might inspire children to take part. We have a page for book recommendations for older children too.

All links are on the home page.
