The National Literacy Trust, along with leading children’s authors, have launched two new digital platforms for parents to support pupils at home.

The ‘Virtual School Library’ for primary schools showcases a popular children’s author or illustrator every week with access to free books, videos and recommendations for future reads.

The virtual school library will encourage reading for enjoyment and support pupils whether learning at home or at school.

The ‘Words for Life’ website provides parents with a wide range of activities designed to support pupils to improve their language, literacy and communication skills from home.
