The Ant Club

This programme is no longer running.

The Ant Club, launched in 2012, was a free reading for pleasure programme for targeted primary schools, offering free resources designed to boost confidence and inspire a love of reading in Reception and Year 1 pupils.

The high-quality classroom resources, take-home activities, and accompanying guidance supported teachers to engage pupils and their families with stories, rhymes and traditional tales.
