Football Reading Quiz

Added 22 Oct 2021

On October 21 2021, teachers and KS2 pupils joined our free online 30-minute interactive quiz about football and reading.

You can watch the recording of the event here, in order to:

  • Promote reading to pupils in a fun and interactive way
  • Engage your pupils in reading activities
  • Showcase reading role models – giving pupils ‘permission’ to read

The event was hosted by Match of the Day magazine favourite, Jake Wilson, with award-winning authors, Tom Palmer and Rob Williams, authors of the Roy of The Rovers series and celebrated how our wonderful friends at Rebellion have generously donated 5,000 copies of Roy of The Rovers books!

Attendees had the chance to win:

  • For the teacher/librarian: a Melchester Rovers shirt
  • For the class: a full set of signed Roy of The Rovers books

The winner was selected from those that signed up to the event and was announced live at the event!

A further opportunity to win related prizes and find out what Roy of The Rovers,and his sister, Rocky, think about reading can be found in the 27 October edition of BBC Match of The Day magazine.
