Oxford Reading Safari

by | Nov 2, 2021 | Schools, Video

Oxford Reading Safari is a personalised, online and interactive reading programme developed by reading and language experts. It is suitable for both English Home and Additional Language speakers.

Oxford Reading Safari has the unique ability to identify a challenged reader’s area of weakness and to tailor the programme to address those problems. It effectively addresses different types of reading challenges in fun and flexible online sessions. Oxford Reading Safari uses mentoring, a proven and powerful learning tool.

The reader works online alongside a reading partner, who could be a therapist, a parent, a committed older child or a teacher. The reader and a reading partner start with a levelling passage so that the reader can begin the programme at the right level. They then work through a series of reading passages that get progressively more challenging.

Oxford Reading Safari makes reading fun! While readers practise their reading, they go on an adventure to a game park. As they read, they will earn points that allow them to see different animals and birds in the game park. They will also learn about caring for injured and rescued animals, conservation and much more! Oxford Reading Safari measures progress in speed and accuracy.

Each reading passage comes with a set of questions to test the reader’s comprehension and vocabulary. Progress is measured and comprehensive reports are available.
