Competition for Roy of the Rovers books

08 April 2019 Share


The National Literacy Trust has teamed up with the publisher Rebellion to celebrate the return of the classic Roy of the Rovers comic.  They are inviting pupils aged 8 to 12 to get creative and write a club motto for Roy Race’s iconic football team, Melchester Rovers. As well as £250 worth of books and comics for their school, the winning pupil will have their motto written into an upcoming Roy of the Rovers book by best-selling children’s author, Tom Palmer, who will also visit the winner’s school! The winner and 10 runners up will also get a full set of signed Roy of the Rovers books. 

There is a range of free teaching resources to support the competition with top tips from Tom Palmer to inspire pupils' creativity. The competition closes on 10th May so there’s lots of time to download activities and encourage your pupils to enter. Find out more here
