Beyond Booked Up is an exciting programme providing free resources to eligible schools for use with Year 7 and Year 8 students.
These include a range of accessible resources designed to help develop speaking, listening, writing and reading skills for 11- to 13-year-olds.
Beyond Booked Up has been designed to ignite pupils’ interest in books and reading by introducing them to a range of the very best writing across a number of different formats. With resources including a Book Trust Anthology of Short Stories, creative introductions to graphic novels and exciting play scripts, as well as performance poetry, Beyond Booked Up uses the Bookbuzz titles as a launch pad for an array of other activities.
Each term, participating schools are sent a package of these specially developed free resources containing ready to use materials for all Year 7 and Year 8 classes. All of the resources can be used in conjunction with existing work plans to support and enrich the curriculum.
