How Does Reading Hub’s eBook Library Support All Abilities in Primary School Pupils?

How many hats does a teacher wear? It’s a trick question because most of us have lost count. With the huge range of needs, abilities and backgrounds in UK classrooms today, teachers need to be as flexible as possible with their teaching methods.

This pressure has mounted over the years as the number of pupils with SEND has risen to more than 1.5 million. In fact, in an average primary school, you’ll find 2.5% of pupils have an EHCP and 13.5% receive SEN support (Special educational needs in England, GOV, June 2024).

We think there’s a solution to this pressure. Reading Hub’s eBook library for primary school pupils is filled with over 3000 eBooks. But these aren’t just any books. They’re the best and most current children’s eBooks available. Meaning that there’s something for every reader. In addition, pupils can access these ebooks on tablets or mobiles in school or at home.

Here’s what you can expect from our eBook library for primary school pupils:

Early Readers: Books with large text, simple sentences, and high-frequency words to support pupils just starting their reading journey.

Chapter Books for Developing Readers: Slightly more complex stories divided into chapters, but still with supportive illustrations and engaging plots to build stamina and comprehension.

Diverse Cultures and Languages: Books that include stories from a variety of cultures and languages, supporting pupils from different backgrounds and those learning new languages.

Inclusive Stories: Stories featuring characters with diverse abilities, experiences, and backgrounds, ensuring every pupil can see themselves represented in their reading material.

Interactive eBooks: Books that incorporate interactive elements like animations, games, or puzzles to engage reluctant readers or support learners with different learning styles.

Educational Non-Fiction: Non-fiction books covering a wide range of interests and academic subjects, such as science, history, technology, and the arts.

Graphic Novels and Comics: These visually driven stories can be particularly appealing to reluctant readers and visual learners, covering genres from superheroes to historical events, presented in an accessible and engaging format.
