Children's football fiction author, Tom Palmer, is working with the National Literacy Trust to create a toolkit of ideas and activities for using football to promote reading for pleasure. The toolkit will be available from early 2010 and Tom is looking for effective ideas that have worked in schools such as events, games, book groups, visits, displays and resources.
The Trust is also launching an online survey which will look at attitudes towards reading, attitudes towards writing and the extent to which pupils (9-16) engage in literacy activities at home with their family. Schools who wish to take part will need to register their interest before 23 October 2009.
