Bug Club is an engaging online world that captures children’s love for reading and imagination in supporting them to become a lifelong reader. Bug Club provides a wide range of books that your child can read on a tablet or laptop.
Your child’s class teacher will select books on Bug Club for your child to read, based on the book band they are working on. For children still learning phonics, these books will link to the ‘phase’ of letters and sounds they are working on. Children, with the support of an adult at home, can then read these as part of their home reading. They are asked questions as they read the text, in a fun and interactive way.
The programme allows the children to practice their skills of word reading and comprehension It will form part of our weekly homework in all year groups.
Your child can earn golden coins by regularly reading at home, which they can spend in a rewards area of the website. Bug Club should be used alongside reading the book banded books that are sent home from school. Please make a note in your child’s diary if you have read a book or used Bug Club, to ensure teachers award their dojo points.
To login to the website use the details below:
Username: Your child’s first initial and surname
Password: The same as Google classroom (found in your child’s diary)
School Code: l7rj (the first letter is a lowercase L)
If you have any questions regarding Bug Club please do not hesitate to contact your child’s class teacher via WEDUC.
