Oxford Reading Tree - Online Reading

Early reading is a key aspect of our EYFS curriculum. Under the current Covid regulations, we are unable to send home books as regularly as usual. Therefore, we have created a log in for all parents to access Oxford Reading Tree books online for free.

Please see the file at the bottom of this page which will guide you through the log in process and navigating your way around the website. Let us now if you have any further questions!
