Thanks to the lovely people at Harper Collins, we have access to these e-books for free.
Don't look at the bandings too much (although they are aligned with our bands), rather, pick a book and read it for enjoyment.
Once you have read it once, sit with your child and ask some questions about it:
What did you like?
Who was the best character?
Can you think of a different ending?
If you could swap places with a character who would it be?
Can you write a next chapter to the story or just tell me 'what happens next'?
These are all good ways to enjoy a book without picking it apart (sadly, that's our job through the demands of the curriculum!).
This is the best way to access the 300+ e-books that Collins have kindly let us access.
It will ask for the postcode of the school. (Future visits *should* remember this bit), enter the postcode and choose us from the drop-down box.
Then it takes you to the login screen
It has asked for the same info each time which will be:
This gets you in!
You need to scroll to Big Cat and go from there.
The other available features are there for your perusal, if you like, but the e-books are the really useful bit.
Hopefully the single-pupil login works for multiple users. It also works on android phones (well mine anyway).
