Oxford Reading Tree resources

Resources and activities to promote early reading skills

Teachit Primary and Oxford University Press have produced a range of editable paper-based and interactive resources on the much loved characters Biff, Chip and Kipper to help pupils develop core reading skills. The time has come and these Activity sheets will no longer be available from 31st January 2022.

If you would like to keep your own version of these Activity sheets, we would encourage you to save your own copy.

We will be updating these pages with different resources to help in the classroom from your favourite characters and the rest of the Oxford Reading Tree series.

Thank you for your valued custom.
