Dear Parents/Carers,

We understand how sometimes things get in the way of your reading your child a bedtime story so we would like to introduce a wonderful ‘read-aloud’ app and recommend that you download it for free on your Apple device or Android device.

There is an extensive library of books for your child to enjoy and you can set a timer on the app to limit their listening if you need to.

The links for the app are shown below . Please let us know if you have downloaded it and encourage your child to share with us their recommendations of books to listen to on the app.

Pyjamarama Event


Dear Parent/Carer


We all know that a child that reads more, achieves more in life so on Friday 7th June, we will be celebrating reading by having a ‘Pyjamarama’ event.


Your child should come to school in their pyjamas and donate £1 to help Book Trust provide support for children to snuggle up and experience the warmth, joy and comfort of bedtime reading and get excited about books, rhymes and stories.


We always focus on reading here at Eldon of course but on Friday 7th June we will be spending even more time celebrating the joy of reading with lots of reading activities and by sharing our favourite bedtime stories. If you would like to join us for DEAR that day, please let your child’s teacher know.


Yours sincerely


Caroline Scott
Assistant Head - English
