Sora Reading App

Introducing Sora

Reading is the most important thing that we can do for our children and we are always looking for ways in which to make this more accessible and easy for children (and parents) to access.

We are delighted to be able to tell you that we have invested in a new reading app called Sora. This is free to download on your phone, iPad or other tablet or can be found by simply typing Sora into a Google search. When you have found the app, please search for Portway Junior School so that you join our online library.

Children can use the Sora app to borrow books, magazines, ebooks and audiobooks from every genre and read for free! The content on the app is from our own school library and, because books are borrowed electronically, there are no overdue fines to be worried about! You can go directly to the Sora link from the pupils' page on our website or you can access it at the link below.

To discover the App, please click this link: Sora Reading App
