This guide is full of practical suggestions and ideas for building a reading culture outwith a school setting.
An escape room style resource, created by Padlox Escape Rooms. Pupils must solve book-related puzzles to find the hidden quill. The resource will test their book knowledge, and encourage them to work collaboratively to solve the 10 brain-teasing puzzles.
Padlox Escape Rooms bring escape rooms to schools, offering a curriculum-focussed half day experience for groups of 30 pupils called 'Escape The Classroom!'
Talking about your experience as a reader is a great way to role model reading to the children you work with. Use this editable PowerPoint to talk about your reading habits, preferences and memories. You can also send it to other staff, any class or group visitors, or use it to structure a presentation from the children you work with!
