Active Literacy and Project Unstoppable

Unstoppable follows the lives of gifted twins Roxy and Kaine, each with their own challenges but a shared passion for sport.
Project Unstoppable

UnstoppableThe Youth Sport Trust approached Dan Freedman, author of the popular Jamie Johnson series, to write a story which captured the skills, values and attitudes that PE and sport can develop in young people and the positive effect it can have on their lives. Taking up the gauntlet, Dan created his latest novel - Unstoppable.

Unstoppable follows the lives of gifted twins Roxy and Kaine, each with their own challenges but a shared passion for sport. Pitched at young readers KS2-3 (age 7-14), Unstoppable is a hugely compelling and dramatic story about the siblings' sporting, family and school experiences that tackles many challenging issues that will resonate with young people, parents, teachers and coaches.

Unstoppable is also a core text in the Youth Sport Trust Active Literacy workshops.

Active Literacy

This is a one day practical course that uses the context of PE and sport alongside practical learning approaches to support the teaching of English across the school. It has been written by teachers for teachers, so it really gets to the heart of the challenges and offers evidence based solutions. 

Delegates will receive practical teaching strategies alongside resource cards linked to reading, writing, speaking and listening for KS1 (age 5-7) and a specially commissioned book, Unstoppable, for KS2 (age 7-11).
