Reading

Please find some fantastic online reading resources below; particularly useful now that we can’t provide books to you from our school library.

Online reading resources sheet

The TES pull-out guide 100 fiction books to read before leaving primary school is a useful general resource.

Learning via Museums:

A number of the major museums have excellent children’s zones within their website.

We would recommend the Natural History Museum website and in particular the ‘Discover’ section which we think will inspire children to learn more about their world.

The Science Museum website contains lots of informative and fun activities for children. These by can be accessed via the ‘See and Do’ section but please do check that the materials selected are aimed at KS2, as the website does provide resources for older pupils which will not be suitable.
