Get real books into children's homes to support early reading at school.

 New stretch target

Help us to get a wide range of phonically controlled books to all year 1 and 2 children that need it. 


We are so excited about our new phonics and reading scheme at Gillespie! We have lovely new books that the children read at school and we are eager to get them into our children's homes as well. Due to cost, children in year 1 and year 2 are currently reading online versions of the books at home but are desperate to share these real books with their families - it just isn't the same through a screen! Help us to send home a wide range of phonically controlled books to the children that need it the most.
