This autumn we invite you to immerse your students in the oldest of all fairy tales, Beauty and the Beast, by bringing to life in the classroom the main characters from the book and Disney Theatrical stage show.

Run in partnership, and aligning with the Disney Beauty and the Beast - The Musical stage tour, our new Reading Champions Challenge is designed for students aged 7-14. The challenge will guide your students as they explore key themes of innovation, empowerment through reading and the downfall of judging on appearances.

Full teacher guidelines, together with supporting learning activities and resources, will be published on this page when the challenge launches on 22 September, 2021.

To be be notified when resources are available, register your interest in joining the challenge on the form below.

You'll need to be logged in on your school or personal account to register. If you don't have a login yet, you can set up a free, personal account.
