Boom Reader - Parents/Family App


Boom Reader have listened carefully to parental feedback and a recent update will make logging reading easier and clearer and includes many improvements parents and carers have asked for.


Attached is an introduction to using Boom Reader - including a QR code to their information page, a quick-start guide to using Boom Reader and a video is available to watch online here too:



At school, we are really fortunate to have a number of volunteer readers regularly reading with the children and using Boom Reader to record this.


As school staff, we recently led some LSA training on how we are using this moving forward as a school. We are keen to continue using Boom Reader to track when children are recording their reading at home, what they are reading and how often. We would love to encourage more children to be recording their thoughts on the books they are reading as part of their pupil comments which are enabled.
