Serial Mash

Serial Mash is a serialised online library of books and guided reading activities designed to inspire students to develop a love of reading and to provide resources to support busy teachers in the classroom.

Through the publication of bespoke weekly fiction, Serial Mash leaves every chapter on a cliff hanger encouraging students to keep returning to find out what happens next, while the accompanying resources ensure students develop the skills to become higher level readers.


Serial Mash includes home access for all students and can be accessed on tablets as well as the web.

The DfE's literacy catch up funding says 'computer based interventions which involve students reading eBooks or eTextbooks online in order to improve pupils understanding of text' can help those who are low-attaining in literacy. Serial Mash is an online guided-reading tool that contains several eBooks that are enjoyable for all students.

Each book comes with associated comprehension activities, all automatically recorded in students' reading journals, and the ability for teachers to see how much and how often students are reading.
