The Power and Importance of Reading

It is so important that children continue to read regularly at home. Children in Year 6 continue to benefit hugely from daily reading (5 minutes) with an adult. This supports their oracy, understanding and confidence as well as supporting a love of reading.

Here’s a few free websites where children can access an amazing range of books.

Get Epic – Free digital library for children. All Year 6 children have the login to their own individual profile. (See instructions on Google Classroom)

International Children’s Library – Free children’s stories available in a wide range of different languages.

Oak National Academy Library – A full text from a well-known children’s author is added each week. Week 1 was Jacqueline Wilson. Week 2 – Nizrana Farook.
