Summer Holiday Reading Skills for Early Years

Starting school is a fun, exciting and nerve-racking time for children… and parents! A perfect way to get school ready is to boost your little ones reading skills this summer with Zip from ReadingWise. Zip takes just 5-10 minutes a day and will help set you up for a flying start.

Reading skills: Use Zip for 5-10 minutes a day

ReadingWise Zip is a fun and interactive way to support your children’s reading skills and build their confidence so that they’re prepared and ready for school. It takes just 5-10 minutes a day and the interactive technology adapts to their progress, focussing more time on reading skills they haven’t mastered while ticking off skills they’ve already nailed!

Zip uses a combination of written and spoken words, presented in a fun and visual way – with little readers working their way through a series of different on screen tasks. It’s so engaging and simple to use, that once set-up, children can work through it alone or with help.

Track their progress

A parent dashboard means you can track their progress and see where they’re struggling and how much progress they’re making. It gives you a great indication of how strong a reader they are.

ReadingWise for everyone

Designed by the same team who developed the ReadingWise Decoding and Comprehension programmes used in Primary and Secondary schools, Zip has been developed specifically for early years, for use at home or at school.

Clever features include a range of audio and visual prompts, plus the option to switch to a dyslexia friendly font. It's also appropriate for children who's first language isn't English.

You can find out more about ReadingWise and our work in schools on the website. If you feel that your school could benefit from ReadingWise to support reading skills, then drop us an email at with 'My School Needs You' in the subject line and we'll send you back an email that you can forward to the school.
