Lockdown Library


Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey are proud to introduce the ‘Lockdown Library’ 


Do you want your child to read more for pleasure and increase their chances for success in life? Having trouble getting access to reading books?

Not sure where to start with encouraging your child to read more for pleasure? Try these top tips:

  • Listening to your child read aloud to you for just 20 minutes a day will amount to 1,000,000 words read in a year AND give you quality time together.
  • Sharing what you are both reading shows your child that reading for pleasure is for everyone.
  • Take turns when reading and ‘do the voices’ – your child will want to do the same on their turn.

Sit down together, visit the Lockdown Library and dive into a great book!

Extreme Reading Competiton

We would love to see your ‘extreme reading’ photos this Summer! Pick up a book, get reading anywhere and everywhere (safety considerations first of course) and get caught on camera!
