Books and Reading
Reading is great way to pass the time and learn about people and places you've never seen. Reading can also help you to make better progress with your learning.
And it doesn't have to be just books - magazines, newspapers, recipes, web sites and reviews can all be interesting, informative and educational.
Get links to websites about books and reading on our Primary Literacy and Secondary English Resources pages. Look out for reading related activities at your local library.
Libraries aren't just about books - you can get online using their computers and wifi, access their e-resources from your computer at home, hire videos and audio books and you can even ask a librarian to help you with your homework!
Watch out for activities in the libraries for children and young people. Perhaps you'd like to join the Summer Reading Challenge, the Teen Xtra Reading Group or the Homework Club?
If you don't live in or near Dudley your local library will also have activities and resources for children and young people. Children in Care Council
The Children in Care Council (CICC) is a group of looked after children, aged 11 - 20 who meet regularly.
They listen to children and young people in care and get involved in things that will ‘Make A Difference’ for children and young people looked after by Dudley Council.
If you would like to join or help the CICC and Make A Difference tell your carer or social worker or email the CICC directly.
