Puffin Schools has been created by the children’s publisher Puffin to help bring together all the inspiring content we create for schools into one place.
Read up, speak up and change the world! This 30 minute show for key stage 2 is filled with booky-fun. Join Robin Stevens, author of Murder Most Unladylike and World Book Day book ‘The Case of the Drowned Pearl’, for a game of Extreme Reading you can play in your classroom.
Picture book writer Rashmi Sirdeshpande will be sharing stories of extraordinary people, and debut children’s author and activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied will be reading from ‘You Must Be Layla’ and inspiring activists of all ages to tell their stories and make a change. Plus make sure you’ve got pens and paper ready for a ‘Little Leaders’ draw-along with the illustrator Vashti Harrison.
Big Dreams on Screen competition
The show includes the launch of a major competition to celebrate Puffin’s 80th birthday this year. One of your class could win their big dream turned into a film and shown at the IntoFilm Festival this November, plus 80 Puffin books. Get your entry form here
