Bug Club is a finely leveled, phonically based online reading scheme with interactive activities. Each child has a personalised homepage where they'll find the e-Books they've been allocated by the teacher and motivating rewards. This ensures that each child can find a book at exactly the right level for them. The online reading world ensures children can access independent reading resources anywhere at any time. New books will be allocated regularly.
Bug Club books have a fantastic range of titles, which are graded into the same colour-coded Book Band levels that we use in school. Within each level there is a carefully planned progression of books. This fine progression gives children plenty of opportunity to develop their reading skills and master each fine step while moving through the reading programme.

Your child's class teacher will allocate a username and password. If you lose it please ask for a reminder. To help you use Bug Club please view the powerpoint presentation link at the foot of this page.
It is important that your child can read the books fluently and understand the information before they move on. If they race through they will not be ready for books from the next colour band and will struggle. This will really affect motivation.
If you don’t have access to a computer or prefer for your child not to use on line reading, they can still enjoy a hard copy of the books
The teacher is able to log on and see what books your child has accessed and how many attempts it has taken to get the answers of the activities correct.
If you are sure your child can read the books fluently, please write a note in your child’s reading diary. The teacher will select one of the books and get your child to read it to do a quick assessment as the next colour will be harder.
