"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

Dr Seuss


We hope you and your families are keeping well and managing Home Learning with your child. We wanted to remind you of the importance of reading and that there are lots of resources for you to avail of. It is great to see lots of children continuing to use Accelerated Reading and getting lots of points for your quizzes, keep it up boys and girls! A few children have yet to complete their Star Reading tests so please do so in order for their teacher to issue their points target for this term. Oxford Owl and LibrariesNI have thousands of online eBooks and activities for your child/children to read and enjoy. There is also a host of websites online with fun games and activities to encourage and develop your child's reading. Some of these include:

Reading Eggs – English games including an elibrary 
Topmarks – resources across the curriculum at a variety of levels 

Classroom secrets – English and maths resources

Amazon Children’s Audiobooks Books – Free downloadable books that can be listened to on a free app 

David Walliams books – free audio book extracts and links to activities  

Please check out the Home Learning section of the website to view materials that can assist with reading, writing and spelling, as well as guidance for Parents/Guardians to assist with Home Learning. These were produced by the Education Authority and provides some really useful tips. As always, please share your reading experience with your class teacher, Mrs McAuley or Mr McKenna as we love to see you all enjoying the pleasure of getting lost in a good book!
