The Rugby World Cup has kicked off in New Zealand and to harness such an exciting event we are delighted to launch a set of Rugby World Cup interactive cross curricular resources.

The comprehensive resources take elements of the tournament and transfer them into ideas and guidance for easy lesson planning.

The toolkit is a high-quality resource for Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3 teachers that uses the Rugby World Cup to promote reading to young people.
