Anthony Horowitz

Description

In this programme, serious Arsenal fan Michael Rosen visits the home of West Bromwich Albion to report on a new scheme called Reading the Game. It's a nationwide initiative to encourage reading sponsored by the National Literary Trust and The Premier League.

At the West Bromwich ground, pupils who find reading difficult take part in a literacy trail, which involves a tour around the ground and a question and answer session with one of the first-team players.

Also in this programme:

  • An interview with prolific children's writer Anthony Horowitz - the creator of the Alex Rider spy novels
  • How Stormbreaker - the first Alex Rider story - is being used in one Birmingham secondary school
  • Grant Bage of NESTA, Winsome Thomas, education adviser to Birmingham LEA, and primary teacher Victoria Shaw, discuss Michael Frayn's book Spies

Part of the series: Reading Aloud with Michael Rosen
