DMA Home Learning

Posted 14th July 2020


Students, as you know, we currently cannot offer you a visit to the iBase to exchange your DEAR book, but this is a perfect time to explore the local resources and the literature that Bradford has to offer. Please follow the links below to access new DEAR materials while you are working from home.

Bradford libraries have the following resources available for you:

Bradford Libraries Online Stories & Rhymes – weekly stories and rhymes from library staff are uploaded each Friday at 10am on this webpage. The videos are available permanently so are very easy to access.

There are also links to story time videos made by authors especially for Bradford Libraries during the current situation eg. Steve Howson. A rhyme about rainbows has also been written and recorded to promote the great sharing of rainbow images in the district.

Bradford Libraries Online Rhyme Challenge – this new online challenge for families sees children and parents learning five rhymes to receive a certificate.

20 things to do when you’re NOT in a library before you are 5 – We launched the initiative “20 things to do at a library before you are 5” a couple of years ago and in response to the current situation we have moved the challenge online with lots of different ideas for families to try associated with book sharing and stories.

Bradford Libraries Reading & Learning Links For Children – lots of reading and learning links for children often tied to the curriculum (but a bit more fun)

E-book/E-Audio service – we have added lots more stock to our E-book and E-Audio service – children’s books available

New online book group – join in the conversation about books

Creative writing and short story course – courses now available online
