Throughout the Covid-19 lockdown in 2022, we created resources and content to help parents keep their Duffy kids engaged in literacy. Feel free to have a browse of this page and keep an eye on our Facebook page and Youtube channel for updates.


Activities for each day of May that everyone can try out. Just click the image below to open up a full-size version that you can either print or save. To see April 2020's challenges, click here.

May Reading Challenge


Being a Duffy kid means you get a whole heap of books during your time at school and not everyone has a book shelf big enough to fit them all in! We have created a couple of ideas that can help you keep your Duffy books organised and safe. All you will need is some tape, a shoe box, cereal box or wooden crate and a whole heap of Duffy kid ingenuity.


You don't have to be on Tiktok to take on Duffy's dance challenge! Set some time aside to watch Duffy in the clip below and then see if you can learn the dance. The hip hop version of the Duffy song can be found on Spotify and Apple Music or head along to our School Resources page and scroll down.


Duffy normally wears a red tee, green hat and blue jeans but feel free to be as creative as you like! Just click on the Duffy you want to colour and a larger version will open to either print and colour or colour in on a computer.

We have created a couple of questionaires to help Duffy kids think a little deeper about the books they are reading. The first link below will lead Duffy kids through a book review where they can review a book they have finished recently and the second link will take you to the Duffy Reading Conference where kids can share some details about a book the are currently reading.
