Dear Children of Oaklands


During this time of school closure we thought that you might be missing your storytime. So, your teachers have been videoing themselves reading stories out loud - just for you. Whilst many publishers have given permission for their stories to be shared online during this time. We are respectful of the fact that we need to delete these videos once school life has resumed.


We hope that you enjoy them
