Please click on the variety of links to support you and your child with reading at home.

Some links will take you to websites that allow you can access books for the children to read at home and others for your children to listen to stories being read to them. 

Please try and listen to your child read every day.

I have also included a website that will give you tips for reading with your child.


***Please login to Rising Stars Reading Planet Online to access your child's weekly reading books, new books will be assigned weekly but only if they have read the previous books. Please support your child as you would with their school reading books which would be normally sent home, Thank you for your support.


Finished the books for the week?

 Re-read the books and practice any words you couldn't read.

Write the words on slips of paper and use the words as flashcards. (put them around your house)

Practice writing sentences using the words you couldn't read.

Ask your grown-up to test with spelling them through the week.

KINDLE - you do not need a kindle to access the books, just download the 'Kindle app' onto your laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. There are lots of books that are free to read.
