Primary School Literacy Competition

Classroom Activities

The Competition and Resource Pack have been developed to support and meet classroom goals using cricket themes. The reading comprehension, writing composition and some word level work have been devised to be used during the Literacy Hour and are based on the National Literacy Framework. The competition is based on the Literacy Framework. Mathematics and Science activities are also included in the appendix and will support the National Curriculum.

The website provides an interactive extension to the competition. Information, activities and competitions are also available on the website. Links to other useful sites are provided. It encourages the use of the Internet, as a source of further information about the world of cricket, and promotes interest and research into the West Indies and Zimbabwe.
