National Literacy Trust (NLT) - Family Zone

The National Literacy Trust (NLT) works to improve the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills in the UK's poorest communities, where one in three people have literacy problems. Because low literacy is intergenerational, we focus our work on families, young people and children.

The National Literacy Trust have launched a family zone website as part of the early outcomes project.

The website is a one-stop shop for families which brings together exciting literacy resources and activities. 

The site is very easy to use, it is divided by age group and will continue to grow. The Family Zone is working on producing further resources including:

  • Simple and fun Small Talk videos to help parents chat, play and read with their young child
  • Top tips for enjoying audiobooks as a family
  • A guide to building a reading den at home
  • A Reading Miles Global Challenge to encourage children to read around the world
  • Activity sheets based on popular children’s books, including Where’s Wally? as well as playful learning activities featuring much-loved CBeebies characters
  • Exciting author videos, including live stories with author Steve Antony, draw-along sessions with illustrator Rob Biddulph and poetry workshops with Sarah Crossan
