Schools Events

Types of school event

There are lots of different school events that I can arrange. And in return, the schools will benefit from great discounts and offers.

Usborne sponsored reading and listening events

Both our Ready, Steady… Read! and Ready, Steady…Listen! events are ideal for schools, if they want to expand their library of books but do not have the budget. Fun and easy to follow, every child at school can take part and ask family members and friends to sponsor them as they read or listen to lots of different stories.

The total number of minutes spent reading/listening is then recorded and the sponsorship money goes towards new books for your school.

Book fairs

I offer the full Usborne school book fair service, so that your school will benefit from free books without having to lift a finger.

I can also tailor the whole event to suit the school’s timetable, curriculum and budget. The event could be:

  • Class by class, for a particular year group, or the whole school.
  • Themed around classroom and curriculum projects or reading events, such as Children’s Book Week and World Book Day.
  • At parents’ days/evenings and PTA events.
  • At fundraising events, such as Christmas or summer fairs.
