Reading Eggs was created by expert educators with over 30 years of experience.
The multi-award winning early learning resource supports your child’s learn to read journey with carefully designed online reading games and activities that are easy to follow, self-paced, and highly engaging for young children.
By incorporating Reading Eggs into your child’s daily routine, you will be helping to prepare them for the same structured learning they will need to succeed and feel confident at school.
Reading Eggs is based on solid scientific research to give your child the best chance at reading success.
Using the five essential keys to reading success, the programme unlocks all aspects of learning to read for your child. Learn more here
Learn essential reading skills
Children complete animated online lessons where they learn essential reading and phonics skills. The variety of fun activities within each lesson provides the repetition needed for these skills to become part of the child’s long term memory.
Read books online
Children gain confidence by reading online books that only contain words they have already studied in the programme. There are over 2000 levelled books in the Reading Eggs programme.
Children earn golden eggs as rewards for the progress they make. They can use these eggs to buy fun reward games and items for their avatar or house. Children also earn a certificate at the end of each map, which can be printed.
After 10 lessons, children complete a quiz. This provides you with a report of what your child is learning. Children can repeat the online lessons as many times as they like to reinforce key learning concepts.
At St Mary's C of E we aim for all of our children to become fluent, confident and passionate readers committed to becoming lifelong learners. Research suggests that to give our children the very best start in life we must instil a love of reading for pleasure. As an incentive, we have updated our reading rewards system so that children get rewarded for their reading achievements each term, rather than at the end of the school year as in previous years. From now on children achieving their Gold award will now receive a special treat at the end of Autumn term, Spring term and Summer term. There will be an additional reward for those prestigious readers achieving Head Teachers Award.
