These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library.
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
This scheme takes the group step by step through the stages of how to write a story.

Some resources you will have to get from the government published folder 'improving childrens writing'.
This resource looks at ancient broom-stick games around the world and asks students to read the information collated from Kennilworthy Whisp's Quidditch Through the Ages and then answer a series of questions.

Finally students are asked to invent their own broomstick, think of a catchy name for it as well as describe its outstanding features. All answers are provided.
