For the biggest football event in Europe, we teamed up with football author Tom Palmer to produce some fantastic resources to help use the excitement of the Euro 2012 tournament to get pupils reading:
Daily cliff-hanger story: The Great Euro 2012 Swindle
The Great Euro 2012 Swindle was the sequel to Black Op, the first book in Tom Palmer’s spies and football Squad series. The story was influenced by the events of Euro 2012, and a new chapter was written by Tom every evening after the games had been played. Also, every Friday, children were invited to vote on what should happen next in the story.

A bumper pack of fun Euro 2012 literacy activities based around Tom Palmer’s The Squad: Black Op and The Squad: White Fear books.

And lots more.
Euro 2012 blog
In the build-up to Euro 2012 and during the tournament itself, Tom also blogged regularly. His blogs provided ideas for teachers to pass on to parents for using the tournament as an opportunity to read with their child at home.
