Wellington Square reading activities online

The Wellington Square website is designed for use alongside the book components of the Wellington Square Reading Scheme. This scheme provides interesting and lively stories for lower ability readers.

The website is easy to navigate and contains a range of activities to support the teaching of reading skills to pupils with Additional Support Needs.

After logging onto the website, pupils are able to enter the Character pages. The character pages follow the same format and are all updated over the course of a term. Each character area contains an introduction, game, quiz, character information, character facts and character questions.  A coloured logo on each web page specifies the reading level for that page. Vocabulary from that level’s word wall is included in the text and there are links to some of the books the pupils may have read.

Pupils must read each character’s area before attempting the quiz section, as all questions are related to the character information and character facts. The website also has ‘Ask a Question’ which pupils can address to a character and receive a reply on the website the following day.

These resources could be used in a variety of settings – whole class teaching, group work or independently.  Worth a look!

  1. I have used these books for many, many years with my children. I am dismayed to find that they are no longer in print. I phoned OUP and they confirmed this. I have had to resort to buying second hand copies on ebay and expensive sets on Amazon and they only have a very limited supply. Why are they no longer in print???????

  2. Hello, i believe that i saw you visited my weblog thus i came to go back the favor?.I’m attempting to in finding
    issues to enhance my web site!I suppose its adequate to
    use a few of your ideas!!

  3. As much as we do not want to think about tough economic times, they do arise.

    For people who have a well liked team such being a football, basketball or baseball team, this may be a fun method
    to bet on the upshot of games. It is very amusing the WSOP
    has original ever sold witnessed same name but two different men winning two tournaments.

  4. Are there online copies of the books? I am in self isolation but would like to continue using these books & activities with some of my pupils.

  5. Angela, I wondered the same. I would like to be able to access these.
