Back to school: Reading for pleasure transition activities

To help you welcome your children back and settle them into the setting, National Trust have put together a range of transition activities to kick-start your year with reading at its heart!

Each resource includes:

  • Quick-fire ice-breakers to support children to get to know each other and you, whilst refreshing core speaking and listening skills
  • Fun, easy to deliver, reading for pleasure activities to help create a buzz about books!
  • suggested read for the first week back, with discussion questions to encourage book talk and book response activities.
  • The recommended read focuses on the theme of transition and new starts.

Each resource is available free to download on this page.
