Our free Reading Challenge pack includes free ready-planned activities, including worksheets and poems (so you don’t need anything else to run it):

→ Step One – choose a book or poem and read it together

Step Two – talk about the book or poem (discussion points included in the pack)

Step Three – complete the activity sheet

If you return an evaluation form to us your organisation could win free books – we have £200 worth of books to give away!
