The National Literacy Trust World Cup resource – Love Football: Love Reading 2014 – has a section about creating displays in schools. Displays that we hope will help get children reading for pleasure.
You can read the whole thing here.
But, if you want a quick introduction, the top five ideas for literacy-based World Cup displays in schools are:
ONE: World Cup reading selfies – children and adults showing off their favourite football reads from newspapers, magazines and websites.
TWO: World Cup goal – a 2D goal on the wall with ball-shaped review sheets for kids to stick in the back of the net. Or wide of the mark.
THREE: Free posters of children’s football authors saying what they’ll be reading to keep up to date with Brazil 2014.
FOUR: Teachers recommending their favourite football reads.
FIVE: A giant highly-ambitious World Cup wall chart that will dominate your school hall, reception or other space.
We hope these ideas are useful. More tomorrow.
