Are you welcoming children from Ukraine in your primary school?

ChatterStars is collaborating with Bookmark Reading Charity to deliver the Bookmark Box for Ukraine to children arriving in the UK from Ukraine.


Bookmark Ukraine Smiles


The box has been designed with the help of teachers, literacy experts and the Ukrainian Embassy in London. It is suitable for children aged 5-9 (one per family) and includes a tablet pre-loaded with ChatterStars, Duo Lingo, Rhino Readers and multilingual eBooks. It also includes lots of books, magazines and activities in Ukrainian and English together with a school stationery set and sensory games and activities for therapeutic play.

We’ve had some wonderful feedback from schools to date, a headteacher from the Nottingham Ukrainian School sent this kind message earlier this week “I must compliment you on how thoughtfully your boxes are compiled, it is a pure treasure chest for a child and surely a great help in mastering the language, and especially appreciate a leaflet translated in Ukrainian – that means so much to the new families.”

You can apply for a Bookmark Box for Ukraine here or contact Bookmark at [email protected] .
