We know that these unprecedented times have made it difficult for students to transition into secondary school in the traditional way of visiting and taking part in activities.  You as parents are also in the unexpected position of providing the educational motivation and nurturing that is usually taken care of by the staff at WCA.  So we here at WCA library are here to support you in delivering reading opportunities in the home.

We have created a really exciting reading group for all Year 6 students heading here in September 2020.  Only accessed by students, their parents and WCA staff means you can confidently see your children broaden their reading horizons, to read independently and encourage their reading for pleasure.

Many educational organisations have made online resources available for free so the group is rich with activities, access to complimentary e-books, recommendations and opportunities to explore the world of reading.  Students will be invited to take part in competitions, fun assignments and offer their own views and recommendations to the group.

Take the stress out of home-schooling by signing up to Edmodo and letting us guide your children into a world of adventure from the safety of their armchair.
