Great News – Epic online reading books available!
Great news Blakeney! Epic – a leading digital reading platform – is now available for all children during lockdown and it’s completely free during school hours AND out of school hours! There is so much to find on there; a collection of more than 40,000 popular and high quality books. Not only that but they’re beautifully illustrated and the site is easy to navigate.
I’ve already set up a class account and I’ve assigned you some class books based on our Topic of Global Warming. I can keep track of who is reading as well as what you’re reading – which is amazing!
Believe it or not, it’s not only reading you can do on this reading site! There is even a ‘read to me’ section of books for those children who are not confident or are new to English and want to follow along with someone else reading the text:
Maybe you like to listen to stories but all the adults are busy? Or perhaps you’d like to listen to a story before bed but feel too grown up to ask an adult? In that case, you could try audio books:
For those of you who like comics – they’re also on the site. Great for EAL children who want to learn more English or maybe for those of you who just love comics!
Whatever it is you like, I’m sure you’ll be able to find it on the Epic site. just go to this weblink: https://www.getepic.com/sign-in
