Quickly see which Bug Club non- fiction books matches a 2014 curriculum topic or subject!

This chart covers all of the Bug Club non-fiction books. We hope you will find it useful in making links across curriculum subjects. For each title, we have listed the most relevant link from the 2014 national curriculum. Very occasionally, there isn’t an appropriate link (for example, the curriculum doesn’t mention Wookiees!) Where this is the case, we have put n/a in the column. Not all of the national curriculum objectives are covered by Bug Club books. This is because Bug Club was designed primarily with the purpose of hooking children into reading rather than to cover all the topics in the national curriculum.
