Let’s Read

On this page, you will find links to reading resources such as Lit2Go or 500 word stories which we would encourage you to explore. There are also reading lists for those of you who want some inspiration as to what book to pick up next.
If you prefer to listen to stories, you could sign up to AUDIBLE where you can access their audio library free for 30 days.
At the bottom of the page are resources on how your parents and carers can support you with your reading as well as some reading challenges you might like to set yourself!
We hope that the resources on this page give you the opportunity to read stories that help you explore new ideas and experiences and let your imagination run wild.

Happy reading!

500 Word Stories

Follow the link below to Radio 2’s 500 words collection. We particularly enjoyed ‘’Tyrannos-oral Hygiene’’ by Mille Robinson, but there are so many fantastic tales to choose from. Reading for just ten minutes a day can improve your wellbeing, help you to relax and improve your own vocabularies. These stories have all been written by students aged 8-13. If any of the stories spark your own imaginations, make sure to let your teachers know!
