Raring to Read - Online Term 1

Age 3 -11 Years


Join an online reading adventure throughout the term! Meet exciting new characters, explore new landscapes, and engage with narratives - all the while developing important reading, listening, speaking, and writing skills at home.

Each of the courses has been written by our senior education team, ensuring age and level-appropriate language objectives and literary targets are addressed every lesson. Regardless of age, by the end of the course, all students will have addressed and participated in the following: 

  • Listen, read and respond to stories read by the teacher

  • Develop reading strategies to aid understanding

  • Demonstrate understanding of plot, setting and character 

  • Discuss and share own ideas and opinions

  • Make connections to other literature and personal experiences

Classes are delivered three or five times a week, depending on your course package preference, and will use the platform Zoom. Those enrolling will be sent a link prior to the first class. Simply click on the password-protected link and join each lesson – we recommend a computer or laptop but an iPad or similar device will also be okay. Teachers will then bring the literary world into your home, providing lots of communicative and interactive opportunities for each student.

  • Online classes so you do not need to leave your home!

  • Small group classes

  • Enrol for 1-4 weeks

  • Participants will receive a basic learning pack to accompany classes prior to the first lesson. The teacher will email parents ahead of time if any home printing is required for a lesson, but alternatives will always be offered for those who do not have printing facilities

  • Minimal resources are required; students only need paper, pen and colouring pens/pencils for the lesson


Spanish - Suitable for primary aged beginners

We also have a Spanish Raring to Read course in which students can attend three times a week for up to 4 weeks. Each week will be a different story.
