The pre-reading clubs are designed to help children's understanding of essential concepts and skills to give them the best start. At this level we include picture books for you and your child to enjoy together. The books we choose support the theme and learning focus of the bundle, and complement the hands-on activities.
Learning to read
We offer three graduating club levels for children who are ready to learn to read or are already learning to read in school. Children thrive when they are supported at home in the same way that they are taught in school. We select the latest and greatest phonics materials at exactly the right book band level for your child so you can offer the best support at home.
These club levels are for children who are independent readers ready to work on higher level reading skills. The materials have been specially chosen by educational professionals and the experts at Oxford University Press to cover the key areas of your child's English curriculum. Each delivery is designed to consolidate and reinforce what your child is learning in school, and help them prepare for end of Primary tests.
The age guides are included as a reference point, but the description of each reading stage and club is the best guide. Please don’t worry if the age reference for the club your child is place in is older or younger than your child’s age. Reading is a journey, and what’s important is getting books at the right level for each individual child, so they can progress with confidence.
Rewards as you go along
Just like you, we know the power of rewards and treats to motivate little ones. Each month, you’ll find a motivational gift inside your delivery (like a Japanese paper balloon, a torch for reading dens or a special notebook). Our longer term subscribers (4+ months) can also expect to see regular ‘loyalty drops’ with additional treats to surprise and delight.
