Reading for Pleasure – English activity for KS1

Key Stage



Years 1-2


Produced by Eden Learning Spaces in partnership with Seven Stories National Centre for Children’s Books

Objective: A free learning resource created for teachers and parents to help inspire a love of reading. A ‘monsters’ theme was chosen to help engage both boys and girls – particularly as boys have been found to be less interested in reading, unless it is an exciting subject matter.

Presented as a PDF, you can print the whole booklet off, or simply select the pages you wish to print, and print multiple pages for your group. We’ve also asked people on Twitter for some of their top tips on inspiring a love of reading – these are included as attractive posters, along with some famous inspiring quotes which can be printed off and displayed as a handy source of inspiration.
