remote reading at OBA

Dear OBA Community – 


We are proud to be a part of the new Key Stage 3 reading initiative: Oak National Academy and the National Literacy Trust have come together to launch our Virtual School Library to keep students reading during lockdown.

Every week, a popular children's author will become our 'Author of the Week' and provide a free book or audiobook and exclusive videos and activities aimed at school children, all available at

This week, our featured author is Nizrana Farook, who talks about her favourite character creations, offers exclusive activities and recommends her top reads to check out. ‘The Girl Who Stole an Elephant’ is also available to read for free for a week. 


Some of the resources might be originally aimed at younger readers but the conversations with the authors will stimulate imagination of students on Years 7 – 9. 


Join in the reading fun!
