We’d like you and your family to create your own version of the Roy of the Rovers story, by completing the blank speech bubbles in the comic strip. There are two comic strips to choose from, taken from Roy of the Rovers: Kick Off, and everything you need can be found in our Complete the Speech challenge resources.

Plus, join our live event on Monday 13 July at 11:30am presented by CBBC’s Ben Shires. Tune in to an interview with Tom Palmer and listen to Tom read an extract from the first Roy of the Rovers book, Scouted. You can even get a free copy of it by heading to the National Literacy Trust Family Zone

Don’t forget to show us your amazing comic strips by sharing them @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars or email them to
