BBC Teach have partnered with the National Literacy Trust to help teachers explore the Marcus Rashford book, ‘The Breakfast Club Adventures' in the classroom.
You do not need to have copies of the book to take part and the first chapter is included in the children’s activity pack – see the PDF resources below.
These resources are suitable for teachers in years 4, 5 and 6, and are free for teachers to download and use.
The support of publisher Macmillan Children’s Books and funding from KPMG UK has allowed 50,000 copies of the book to be donated to schools participating in the Marcus Rashford Book Club initiative.
In the short clip above, filmed as part of CBBC Book Club, co-author Alex Falase-Koya and illustrator Marta Kissi share some tips about writing and illustrating.
And check out the bonus clip from CBBC Book Club, featuring a short demonstration of how to draw Marcus Rashford!
