Summer Reading Challenge


Over the Summer holiday there are many wonderful national Reading Challenges available in which to participate. See the link below for more information about one set up by The Reading Agency.



Alternatively, we have provided below our own reading challenge which we hope might provide a little additional motivation for children to engage in a variety of different reading activities and genres during the Summer break. Most importantly, we want reading to be a pleasurable activity which can be shared and enjoyed with others.
