The Six Nations rugby starts on February 3rd. A great chance to use children’s passion for rugby to engage them with reading and writing for pleasure.
I have loads of resources available on my website that you can use in schools and libraries and homes. All free.
In brief, this is what I can offer.
One. A new video where I talk about rugby reading for the 2018 Six Nations tournament.
Two. Several free downloadable rugby and reading posters in English and Welsh.
Three. Four books set in the world of rugby union. My Rugby Academy series, about a school rugby team. And Scrum.
Four. Certificates – signed and dated by me – for any children who read my Rugby Academy series.
Five. A reading comprehension exercise for each of the four books above.
Six. A Top Trumps game using characters from my Rugby Academy series.
Seven. A free Rugby World Cup story, commissioned by England Rugby in 2015.
Eight. Lesson plans written in conjunction with England Rugby. Half about reading. Half about writing.
Nine. Reviews of the major rugby union books, magazines, websites and newspapers.
Ten. Two school activity toolkits of ideas to promote reading through rugby union.
