What is Oxford Reading Buddy?
This is a great resource containing lots of screen books. But, to be totally clear, we are not expecting most of our pupils to be able to use the system independently nor to be able to access all of the comprehension questions and tests. The Buddy is simply a resource for you to access, if you wish, with your child. For some pupils this may be as a guided ready tool for you alone; for others as a 'read to me' set of books and of course some will be able to access the quizzes, with additional support most likely.
Teachers are not using any results from home use for assessment purposes so there is no need to be concerned about that at all. The in-school partner programme (Reading Tree with Floppy Phonics) is used by us to stimulate and engage as well as to teach reading decoding.
If you would like full access, please contact your child's teacher and they will issue you with a personal log-in. So, please ENJOY if it suits you and your child but don't worry if it does not.
