Summer Reading Challenge

Summer Reading Challenge

The children have had a visit from Dorset Library Services to explain this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.  There is a mystery to be solved and the  'Animal Agents' are the ones to do it.   As your child reads through six books, they will collect clues to solve crimes. The books can be handed in and taken out at any public library in the country.  See link to library website for more information.

We have decided to tie this Summer Challenge in with our own School Reading Challenge for next year.  When the children receive their medal and certificate in school for completing the task, we will give them an additional gold leaf to put up on our Reading Tree in the hall.   This will count as two reading activities in the Autumn Term, so your child will be well on their way to achieving the first term's goal.  The rewards for reading are even better next year, with a termly treat for those reading a minimum of four books per term and completing a task for each one. There will also be no limit to the number of leaves a child can earn over the year.  

 

Reading with your child over the summer is the easiest and most enjoyable way to ensure that they get off to a flying start when school begins in September.

 

Have a great summer and keep reading!
