National Literacy Trust launches web resource for reading

As a response to UK school closures, the National Literacy Trust has developed a comprehensive web portal for parents, to support them during the Coronavirus Pandemic.

Over the next days, weeks and months they will be updating this as often as they can with new and useful content for parents.

Split up by age group, you will find ideas and guidance for simple activities that will engage your children at home, while also benefiting their reading, writing and language development.

You’ll be able to access free reading and writing resources, audiobooks, videos, competitions and reading challenges.

Every resource is available for free, although to access some you may need to create a free account.
