Reading resolutions

A new year or term is a great time to revisit reading goals. These reading resolutions will help pupils choose, or set, their own ambitions for their reading, putting them in charge of their own motivation.

Reading dares

Whether chosen randomly or selected by pupils, these dares give pupils a fun and easy challenge to aim for! Why not ask pupils to create their own?

My Life as a Reader

Talking about reading habits, preferences and challenges with your pupils is a key part of role modelling reading. This editable PowerPoint lets you explore your identity as a reader throughout your life. Use it as a way to kickstart a conversation about reading, or ask pupils or guests at your school to use it to talk a little more about what they do (and don't!) like to read.
