    The library in my school is very poorly resourced.Does anyone know websites where the children can access books online? (especially non-fiction-topic/history books).I use oxford owl but it doesn't have many non fiction books to read.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi, the TES iboard site has lots of non-fiction books (as well as storybooks). Books for 4-7 ages usually have full sound support as well - great for emerging readers/SEN pupils). Many books are part of the premium content - however, you can take a free 30-day trial (subscription is £11.99 per year for everything). Here's an alphabetical listing of the non-fiction books

    Oxford Owl is pretty good. Lots of free online books to read (and listen to!) including Oxford Reading Tree. Well worth a look. http://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

    I like storylineonline it is famous actors reading storybooks out loud.

    Great for filler activities, wet play etc. I have taught a range of ages and every year group I have had constantly ask to watch a story. I like it as it helps language development.

    I've just discovered the iPad app called Epic. You can register as a teacher and their whole online book catalogue becomes free! Not sure if this is the same if you're a pupil but worth a look. Lots of lovely interactive books but please be aware that it is a US based app so American accents for read aloud books and, I'm assuming, American spelling too.

    We use www.readingeggs.co.uk for this - unfortunately our school library has suffered because of it but it has far more books than we could stock :0
