About Secret of the Sands

Read With Biff, Chip and Kipper is the UK’s best-selling home reading series. Over 5 million copies of the series sold in the UK alone since 2005. It is based on Oxford Reading Tree which is used in 80% of primary schools.

Level 6 First Stories have been specially written to introduce and practise a range of everyday words and story language. Fun plots and carefully levelled text with gradual progression create the perfect combination to build children’s confidence and enjoyment of reading.

Key words at this level include: laughed, something, under, behind, suddenly, shouted, station, climbed/climbing/climber, thought, wasn’t, could/couldn’t

These four engaging Biff, Chip and Kipper adventures include tips for reading together and for talking about the story, puzzles and fun activities. Written by Roderick Hunt and beautifully illustrated by Alex Brychta, they are perfect for children who are developing their vocabulary, fluency and confidence in reading.

Level 6 Phonics stories are also available to introduce letter sounds and practise reading by sounding out words, as children learn to do at school.

  • It is so important during these times to sit down with your child and communicate with them. And reading is a proper way to develop the dialogue. Also, learning how to ask questions and use humorous comments is also a skill that children should learn. A wonderful presentation
