Whatever it takes to get every child in Leicester reading!
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and restful Christmas break from all at Whatever it Takes.

It has been a busy year so far for WiT and as you can see from the rest of the e-bulletin we've lots more in store for the New Year!


Please find below links to the Primary and Secondary brochures for Author Week 2016.

Tickets will not be released until January 18th, but we thought early release of the brochure would give your school more time to plan which session they would like to attend. As always places will be on a first come first served basis and there will be a limit of 50 chidlren per school. 

Further information inc booking links will be sent to all Reading Champions prior to the tickets going live.
