Welcome to the First Minister's Reading Challenge
The link between reading for pleasure and success in education beyond is well established, but how do we help children develop the reading habit?
Our Challenges, resources, book list and Inspiring Classrooms funding are designed to help you get primary school pupils reading and to build and sustain a reading culture in your school. Select the Challenges that work best for your pupils and showcase your inspiring results!
How does it work?
Resources for Teachers
We have a wide range of downloadable resources and templates to help you bring Challenges to life in the classroom!
