English Department Keystage Three Summer reading J K Rowling's The Ickabog
During lockdown, J K Rowling has released her tale of "The Ickabog". The link to the website and also to an exciting competition to illustrate it can be found here.
We are aware as a Department of the importance of reading to continue to develop student vocabulary and word recognition as well as firing students' imaginations. Therefore Team English have recorded themselves reading the tale on a series of videos. The text appears on screen so you and your child may like to listen - we will release enough videos toy keep your son/ daughter engaged in reading over the summer break.
We have also added the most recent advice for parents from the Education Endowment Foundation who are working closely with the government to minimise the impact of loss of schooling. Their info graphics are a useful tool for parents to maintain their child's interest and engagement with reading. Some of the statements are geared more to Primary children but they will give an idea of what conversations around reading could sound like.
We hope you find this an entertaining and enjoyable time to read with your children.
