Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge 11th July -12th September
Each year the Reading Agency works with libraries to encourage children aged 4 – 11 to enjoy books during the summer holidays.

Often those already at school can experience a dip in their reading during the summer and the reading challenge offers them the opportunity to keep up their reading skills and confidence.

This year the theme is Record Breakers and pupils are expected to read 6 books for which they will receive stickers.

The scheme needs volunteers to assist in local libraries to talk with children about the books they have read. If you are a RSVP school volunteer why not encourage your pupils to go to their local library and join the challenge and you might like to volunteer to help at your local library.
