World Cup 2018 literacy resources

In June and July 2018 I will be writing a live thriller adventure set at the World Cup finals in Russia. It will be published on the National Literacy Trust website.

Each weekday morning a new chapter will be available for free for schools and families to read. Each chapter will be a ten-minute read. It will be written so that it can be read with Y4 to Y8 and will feature dramatic cliffhangers.

The story will be influenced by the events of the tournament on and off the field. I will be writing the chapters each evening before publication the next morning, meaning they will be as relevant as possible.


Also, the action will be influenced by the votes of children in schools up and down the UK.

The story will probably start roughly 11th June and end around 16th July.  But that is to be confirmed.

If you would like a reminder email about this please email and we’ll email you in the spring.

If you know of any other classes and schools who would be interested in this, please pass it on.

Many thanks – Tom
