Win Reading Plus - Spring Storyboard Competition 2023

We are super egg-cited to be launching our first Spring Storyboard Competition!

We invite students to use their creative imagination and design a storyboard based on our story synopsis, to be in with a chance of winning Reading Plus for their class*.

We’ve compiled a lesson plan, planning sheet, and resources for KS2 and KS3/4 students to get you started.

Win Reading Plus

To be in with a chance of winning the online reading development programme, Reading Plus, students must submit a six or eight-box storyboard design (we have printable storyboard templates in the resources section below) based on either the KS2 or KS3/4 synopsis.

If storyboards are entered by a parent, carer, or guardian, they must have confirmation from the child's school that they would be willing to receive the prize if they win the competition.

This competition is open to non-Reading Plus user schools only.


How to enter

Entries, including school name, student name and age, should be emailed to by 5 pm on Thursday, 30th March 2023. Only one entry per student will be accepted.

Six entries (storyboards) will be shortlisted and shared on Reading Solutions UK's social media channels. Followers will be asked to vote for their favourite. The three prizes will be awarded to the top three posts with the highest engagement – e.g., the student with the highest number of votes across all social channels will win the first prize.

Voting closes at noon on Friday, 21st April 2023. Winners will be announced Tuesday, 25th April 2023.

KS2 Synopsis and Storyboard

KS2 Synopsis

One Easter Sunday, in a world controlled by a dangerous man that had been destroyed by an apocalypse, a group of children are resolved to defeat the ruler Tentra and take back the power. Rumour has it that a golden egg was hidden somewhere in the ruins of their once-thriving city, and those who had it, could gain control. The children decide to go on an Easter egg hunt, determined to find the golden egg and save their city. This would be an Easter to remember….

KS3/4 Synopsis and Storyboard

KS3/4 Synopsis

It was Easter Sunday, and the world was a desolate wasteland. A deadly fungus had spread across the globe killing most of the population. But, despite the grim circumstances, a group of young survivors fought on against The Searchers – a group of ex-military leaders who controlled all food and water. Like most of the population, the townspeople of Halviar were low on supplies, and so they entered the annual Easter egg hunt to win golden eggs that can be traded…but at what cost?
