Run a Booknic: A Reading Picnic!

As part of the Summer of Reading, we invite all schools to hold a Booknic – a Reading Picnic!

A chance to read, relax, eat and discuss books together, to build reading together memories and offer support for reading.  Our research shows social reading environments matter.

Download the Booknic guide now to organise your own Booknic.

Use the Menus of Recommendations, Character Quiz and Summer Reading Adventure to add some flavour to your Booknic! Simply click preview on each download and print directly.

Do share your #OURfPBooknic photos to win book prizes!

With Thanks To Nicola Davies For Her Video Contribution And Reading Of ‘The Promise’ And Our Teacher Reading Group Leaders And Members For Their Contribution.
