Read The Game

Read The Game is a project we’re immensely proud of, providing fun and interactive workshops to local primary schools which aim to engage reluctant readers and encourage them to read football related literature. The workshops are aimed at small groups of KS2 children who wouldn’t normally read recreationally or who might need a bit of inspiration to improve their reading ability.

Teacher from St Mary’s RC Primary Oswaldtwistle:- ‘The children thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. they look forward each week to the next one! They returned enthusiastically and eager to tell everyone what they had been doing. A good variety of tasks were completed which really motivated the boys and encourage them to read more.’

 Consisting of 6 x 30 mins workshops, a member of the Community Trust’s Primary Stars team will come and work with the group providing a variety of football related resources, such as match day programmes, player profiles and match reports. The pupils will also be given match day programmes to take away, encouraging them to read at home with their parents. Evidence of work completed can also be provided to the school teachers to illustrate the pupils’ engagement and achievements.
