    10. 10. <ul><li>ContinYou has been helping schools set up Year 7/S1 reading clubs since 1998.

The pack is aimed at anyone who is starting up a reading club or who wants to develop the work they are already doing. </li></ul><ul><li>To find out more about Book-it! contact Jenna Hall at [email_address] or by telephone on 020 8709 9900. </li></ul>Book-it!

To support their children's learning, parents and carers work with their children at home, using a range of exciting Share materials. These complement classroom teaching of English and Maths at the Foundation Stage and at Key Stages 1 to 3, and are linked to the Literacy and Numeracy Frameworks. Parents have the chance to gain accreditation for what they learn as they take part in the programme. </li></ul><ul><li>For more information contact: </li></ul>Support for children and families
