Reading Interventions

As part of the targeted interventions and additional support offer, we have bought in the following reading schemes to help our children and young people.




Reading Eggs makes learning to read interesting and engaging for kids, with great online reading games and activities. This is for Keystage 1 (up until age 7)

Reading Eggspress is for ages 7 - 11

Children love the games, songs, golden eggs and other rewards which, along with feeling proud of their reading, really motivate children to keep exploring and learning.
