Premier League Primary Stars Reading Festival - Celebration challenge


Premier League Primary Stars Reading Festival - Celebration challenge

KS1/Foundation, KS2

To seal off a year that has had many challenges, you deserve some time to celebrate! So we are joining once again with the National Literacy Trust to bring you one great big amazing challenge and a whole series of live events for our very first, and very special, Premier League Primary Stars Reading Festival! The festival takes place every morning at 10:30am from Monday 12 July to Friday 16 July. See you there! 

We have top authors from the world of football and sport, including Paul Cookson, Venessa Taylor, Kwame Alexander, Sharna Jackson, Charlotte Browne and Matt Oldfield. Each will deliver a very special live workshop as a Zoom webinar, presented by CBBC’s Kenzie Benali and Ben Shires.

Visit the National Literacy Trust’s Words for Life website for more information about the Festival and to sign up for the events.

Don’t forget to share your pupils’ celebrations with us by sharing them on @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars or emailing them to for a chance to receive a box of books for your school.
