Ollie's Activity Challenge Card

Youth Sport Trust

Youth Sport Trust

Practice your balance with Ollie! 

It’s all about skateboarding for Ollie.

He likes the freedom of being outside doing tricks – it clears his mind. When Ollie is learning a new trick, he knows he will need to practise it over and over again until he gets it right – but that’s part of the fun.

Blaze the phoenix is his inspiration – he wants to fly like her!

Ollie is dyslexic but that never stops him reading. His favourite thing to read are funny stories and he loves listening to a good audiobook. 

You can practise your balancing skills and even create your own skate park balance obstacle course with Ollie’s activity challenge card below.

Bringing our superstar team to life, the set of amazing activity challenge cards have been created by our partner Youth Sport Trust. 

Join the Summer Reading Challenge at your library OR online.

If you’re taking part online, add the books you have read and give them a review!

Look out for helpful tips around supporting reading with dyslexia coming soon to the website!
