Burnage students can now access a vast digital library with over 5000 books to suit all reading interests and abilities. MyON provides books for everyone, including those learning English and young people reading GCSE level texts.
This is a perfect time for young people to develop a positive reading habit and strengthen essential literacy skills that will help them succeed in every area of life.
Lacking vital literacy skills holds a person back at every stage of their life. As a child they won’t be able to succeed at school, as a young adult they will be locked out of the job market, and as a parent they won’t be able to support their own child’s learning. This inter-generational cycle makes social mobility and a fairer society more difficult. (National Literacy Trust website, 2020)
Students can read or listen to books on a phone, tablet or computer and can access the site using their existing Accelerated Reader details.
