Story Hunters

Story Hunters

Story Hunters is our new reading adventure for Year 4 children, designed to help struggling or reluctant readers.

To encourage a love of reading, each pupil will get a monthly personalised pack of books and activities, for a six-month period.

 

It’s all based on our award-winning Letterbox Club model, which has been running for over ten years.

Make the most of Pupil Premium

Reading for pleasure can have a dramatic impact on a child's educational outcomes and wellbeing. Since schools are expected to set ambitious home reading targets as part of the national curriculum, Story Hunters is a rewarding way to build home-school links and use funding to close the attainment gap.  Read our FAQs

 

What other teachers think

The students have said it makes them feel really special to have a parcel delivered to them personally, and it makes them try harder with reading. Gillian Parr, Year 4 teacher, Appleton Academy

Parents were astounded with the resources and the quality of them, and they were very excited. Nida Jamil, Year 4 teacher
