Phonics and Reading

Hi everyone – there has been lots of press coverage about this today but in case you have not seen it the Virtual School Library (Oak National Academy and the National Literacy Trust) is launched today.

Every week a popular children's author or illustrator will provide you with free books, exclusive videos and their top three recommended reads.
