Here are some extra online resources that are currently free to sign up to:

  • https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/ - This is the reading scheme we predominantly use in school (Oxford Reading Tree). You can sign up for free and have access to some of the books we would have in school as an eBook! It isn’t all of the books unfortunately, as you would need a subscription but ORT have said that while schools are closed to some children, they are making more eBooks available. You just have to filter the collection by looking at the ‘Levels’ filter and selecting ‘Book Bands’ – it will drop down a menu with all of the book band colours we have in school. Find you child’s band colour and browse the eBooks they have available. There are also other eBooks available on there from ORT – filtered by age. Please be aware though - you do have to purchase some of the wider collection – just use the free selection if you wish.
     
  • https://kids.classroomsecrets.co.uk/ - This is a kids version of a teacher resource site. They have interactive games and activities for SPaG, Reading and Maths – all for free while they are testing their new site as a BETA. Please feel free to sign up while it is available for free. On here, you need to find your child’s year group at the top. The drop down menus allow you to search for games within their year group to support learning you have done at home. The reading area is interesting – they have created reading comprehension activities for texts pitched at their year group – these may be worth giving a try to support reading at home too.
