LifeJackets is running a reading challenge for 7-11-year-olds in England, led by teachers and youth leaders. Our theme is ‘Home‘ which provides a framework to explore topics such as homelessness and housing, belonging, refuge and migration in a hopeful and age-appropriate context.

Our Reading Challenge pack:

→ Includes free ready-planned activities

→ Supports children in developing their own ethical code

→ Is a cross-curriculum resource that can help meet RE and SMSC obligations or fit into PSHE or English lessons. It can also map onto the Headstart Academic Resilience framework.
