Select ‘ Read Write Inc e Book library’ and select a level relevant to your child’s ability.

We would suggest those children who are currently reading ditties use ‘ditties and red books’.

For those children who are practising blending sounds we suggest that they begin to read the ditties.

All children can access reading books by clicking on ‘Oxford Owl e Book library’.

Books found here can be either read by children or shared with an adult or older sibling.

Happy reading everyone!
