Oxford Owl Reading

  (Just click the Owl  icon to take you to the website!)

The books below are available as a free ebook from Oxford Owl. You will need to create a login, but then you will have access to all of their available ebooks which cover the book bands we have in school. We suggest that your child starts on a level they are reading in school and then selects a more challenging label when they are ready.

For some of the books we have created some ‘Guided Reading Questions’ and these can be found below.

Each session should last no more than half an hour. At school, we would aim for two sessions in a week, but it is entirely up to you!

As well as giving the children an opportunity to read a book independently, it also gives them a chance to practise their other reading skills such as predicting, inferring and working out the meaning of unfamiliar words.

The questions are designed to be accessible to the children on their own, but you might like to discuss the questions with your child instead of making them write out the answers if that works best for you.

Some of the other books also have onscreen activities and questions, please open this document to see which ones have these links
