Teacher Surrounded By Engaged Pupils With Reading Activities for Primary

Inspire primary pupils to fall in love with reading and discover new ways of motivating reluctant readers

Not only is reading a key skill, it also encourages pupils to be creative and use their imaginations. From memorable characters to plot twists and enchanting settings, stories are often able to capture the interest of young learners and leave them wanting to read more. Here, we have gathered together a selection of reading resources, with gripping fiction extracts and fun non-fiction topics, that you could use in your primary classroom.
