‘We Love, We Laugh, We Learn’

Mrs Brown, our school SENCO, coordinates volunteers in our school. As part of our role in supporting volunteer readers we have been provided with some resources for students to access during lockdown. 


Dear parents and carers,

Please see below links to three stories read by a volunteer from the charity Schoolreaders, who provide free volunteers to listen to children read 1:1 in primary schools. As the volunteers can’t go into schools at the moment, they have arranged for some volunteers to do reading videos instead.


Schoolreaders Storytime - 'The Ravenous Beast' by Niamh Sharkey

The ravenous beast is hungry; he’s hungry, hungry, hungry. But is he the hungriest animal of all?

Reading age: 5+

Schoolreaders Storytime - 'One is a snail, ten is a crab' by April Pulley Sayre

If one is a snail and two is a person, we must be counting by feet!

Reading age: 3+

Schoolreaders Storytime - 'This is Our House' by Michael Rosen

A book about the power of sharing. George says the cardboard house is his and no one else can share it.
