Reading - Every day please!
AR Reading Tests - As all the children took books home to read over the holidays, I have asked permission to copy in the link so that the children can take their AR tests regularly to inspire them to keep reading - and books of their choice too! https://ukhosted41.renlearn.co.uk/2236527 The children know their logins and so should be able to access this from home.
Borrowing Plymouth Library e-books
We have managed to get usernames for the whole class so that you can access library books during lockdown allowing you to continue reading - Covid free! Here are the directions for logging in and I will send you your login details via Class dojos. Please keep reading and completing ARs - I will be monitoring the word count and 'sending' certificates as people pass their targets.
Any questions - send me a message!
|Which website do I use?||
Log into Wheelers Books to provide access to eBooks via ePlatform: Plymouth Library Service to Schools - Plymouth Library Service to Schools (wheelers.co)
|How do we get log in?||You will be given user names which will be sent to your dojo account.|
|What about passwords||A username is all you need. Leave the password field blank.|

|Do I need an App?||The simplest way to read eBooks is to access the free ePlatform app from your app store and search for our library - Plymouth Library Service to Schools. Alternatively you can read the eBooks through your browser.|
|Can I continue reading when I’m not online?||When you use the browser reader the entire eBook is cached. That is, as soon as you open the book it begins downloading into a type of ‘History’ on your computer or device. The whole book will be cached, and you’ll be able to read the book even if you’re offline.|
If you click on the star below for this week's learning, you will find a suggested timetable for all of your learning for the week. Please click on the blue highlighted words and that will take you to the task. Some activities are added as documents below the timetable but this is clear on the timetable. Once you have completed a task, please screen shot or take a picture of it and then send it to me on Class Dojos so that I can celebrate with you and award Dojos for work completed.
