We have relished filling our immersive new library with high quality children's texts, both non-fiction and fiction, and picking our favourites to display on our reading tree. We have also had themed book collections, which have included STEM, Women in Computing, School Values, Expanding Vocabulary, A Week in Space and Top Sequels and Prequels.
You can find book lists and suggestions for different themes on the School Reading List website, which is updated extremely regularly with new releases.
We allocate books to your child according to their reading levels. These books will appear in the 'My Stuff' area of their personal homepages. Throughout the books there are quiz questions for your child to complete. To answer a question, just click on the bug icon. Your child does not need to finish all the quiz questions in one sitting and can come back to a book later.
When your child has finished all the quiz questions in a book, he or she will earn ‘Active Learn Coins'. By reading more books, your child will earn enough coins to buy a reward in one of the many reward schemes.
The answers to the quiz questions will be sent back to our teacher site so that we can see how your childis progressing. We will also be able to assign more books for your child to read if the virtual book bag is running low.
