We love reading...

I have previously put on information for our children in Key stage 1 about Oxford Owls free log in for parents and also free books on myOn for yrs 3,4,5.

Today I`m reaching out to my free readers, those children who read novels and classics and love reading as much as I do. I know you are struggling at the moment with no libraries open and the only access to books being to buy them online, or in supermarkets.

We are very proud of the way you are all still reading at home, let your teacher know by DOJO what you are reading and we will celebrate it here...

For you today just a few suggestions, Going online to the Millennium Library Norwich, follow the Corona-virus link and request a card or use your existing library card and you can borrow eBooks to read at home free of charge. Below is a snippet from their page...
