This resource outlines how focusing on reading for pleasure with the First Minister’s Reading Challenge can help you achieve your aims as a school, from raising attainment to improving pupils’ health and wellbeing.
This resource pack was created in partnership with Into Film to help you make connections between reading for pleasure and film-making.
Part 1 of this resource guides you through a number of creative ways to respond to what you are reading using film, from book review videos to book trailers. Part 2 gives you great tips on how to illustrate your reading journey through film, which is particularly useful if you are submitting an entry to one of the challenges at the end of the year and would like to do so through a video.
