Bugs Club

Get excited about reading with ‘Bug Club’!

Bug Club is a whole-school reading programme designed to teach early reading. This phonic-based reading programme joins physical books with an online reading world, to teach today’s children to read.

Children will have access to a wide range of paper-back books, along with their own personalised reading world which includes interactive activities, characters they know and love and rewards to keep them motivated. This will create that all important link between school and home. Bug Club works in conjunction with Accelerated Reader, our other whole school reading tool.

Bugs Club teaches early reading while Accelerated Reader supports pupils to become independent readers. Once pupils reach the top (red) band in Bug Club, they will move onto Accelerated Reader exclusively.

The books are carefully graded to match the children’s reading ability and the importance is placed upon children going back and re-reading the books, playing games to reinforce their understanding. This skill is will develop the children’s comprehension skills and moves away from the children reading books at a fast pace to get ‘through a colour band’.

Children will be given their own login to access their online reading world. On their homepage the children will see books allocated by their teacher which they can read. When they complete the quizzes, they can earn ‘Bug points’ which can be exchanged for online rewards and rewards linked to our Class Charts reward store.

Please see the following for more information, Should you need further help please contact your child’s teacher.
