Keeping Active

Read On Nottingham the Nottingham Literacy Hub

Read On Nottingham works with families and young children to improve their life chances by giving them the early literacy skills they need.  It also focuses on crucial stages of transition from primary to secondary school, keeping a love of reading going as children get older, which has huge benefits for their education.   Working with KPMG and with major publishers, Read On Nottingham aims to get books distributed to young people via education, community and food bank settings that remain open.


A facebook page has also just been launched called Read On Nottingham and work is taking place to upload helpful content as quickly as possible.

The National Literacy Trust has launched a new website called Family Zone. It provides the best of the NLT resources in one place, split into sections for Early Years, Primary Age, Secondary and Young Teens and is ideal for parents/carers, children and young people who are at home and want to engage in a range of reading and learning opportunities. 

It is easy to use, divided by age group and will continue to grow. The Family Zone is working on resources including:

  • Simple and fun Small Talk videos to help parents chat, play and read with their young child
  • Top tips for enjoying audiobooks as a family
  • A guide to building a reading den at home
  • Reading Miles Global Challenge to encourage children to read around the world
  • Activity sheets based on popular children’s books, including Where’s Wally?, as well as playful learning activities featuring much-loved CBeebies characters
  • Exciting author videos, including live stories with author Steve Antony, draw-along sessions with illustrator Rob Biddulph and poetry workshops with Sarah Crossan

NLT’s aim is to offer content that is family friendly, high quality and features real people loving literacy. – the author Manuela Molina , has created this short book to support and reassure our children, under the age of 7, regarding COVID-19. The book can be downloaded in many languages.

The campaign is being driven through social media with support by radio and TV to ensure it reaches a broad audience. Assets have been created that partners, organisations and individuals can use to help spread the work and create materials and activities.

The campaign will link through to a web page ( ). There is a range of home workout options – including existing free exercise content and advice from organisations such as the NHS, and workouts from popular fitness brands and influencers such as Les Mills on Demand, Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) and FiiT, many of whom are offering free content and extended trials to help people get easy access to home exercise.
