Bug Club Update - Januaury 2021


Last year, you may remember we introduced a new reading scheme to the children at Clarendon Infant School.  It is called Pearson Bug Club. The scheme has a comprehensive collection of high quality reading books for the children to use in school. Pearson bug club also has an online element which you can access at home. You may have used this reading resource during online learning and are aware that it has lots of books which you can read at home.


In your child’s reading record, there is a login in and password so your child can access this resource at home. Each child has been issued a new password. The website is: - there is a digital link below you may use. If you have any issues with your child’s login and/or password, please speak to your child’s teacher – thank you!


We hope you enjoy using this fantastic reading resource at home!

Reading Vipers

This is an information booklet linked to the KS1 Reading Skill Vipers. These are the types of questions which your child will be asked during their reading. We have provided it here for you to use at home as well. Not all of them are used in EYFS and if you do use them at home you may want to focus on Retrieval and Explaining. If you have any questions or queries about this, please see the video on the Learning Resource Center or email your class teacher - thank you!
