Resources to support Reading for Pleasure while school is closed

During the school closure, as librarian, I want to support our families in accessing suitable sites and resources to ensure their children are still able to read for pleasure and continue the additional activities associated with reading. 

There is so much being made available, some of it free; I will only add those websites and resources which I have previously successfully used within school or have tried and tested while I now work from home.  In a fast-changing situation, everything I add may change at short notice – I will check each item frequently.

 

Brilliant reading charities I use in school

BookTrust

Children’s laureate Cressida Cowell and many other authors and illustrators are working with BookTrust to host home learning and reading opportunities, including readings from books and drawing:
