We are committed to ensuring that all children have access to reading books during the national lockdown. Reading is so important for the development of your child’s core literacy, their future academic success as well as their overall well-being. In these troubled times, reading offers a wonderful opportunity to ‘switch off’ and relax.
We are offering free access to an online library known as myON reader. A digital resource with over 1,000 titles for children to choose from. Many of the books have an audio option, so children can listen to the text being read to them. Additionally, there are multiple stories & non-fiction books available to support your child’s learning in both Spanish and French.
Information about how to access the myON library website can be found in the Parent Guide.
