As the summer reading challenge is all set to begin next week I thought if was time to promote it in our school library; this year’s theme is Record Breakers.
Found an ideal area, displayed the posters, added a few Guinness World Record Books and it’s already attracting interest. On arriving home from work a great addition to the display and the library had arrived.
Thought this might turn a few heads, as we have a lot of Henry fans in both the infants and junior classes.
The Summer Reading Challenge is a fantastic event. It’s a great way to get children to visit the local library and keep up with their reading over the long summer holiday. They read 6 books, of their choice, collecting stickers and rewards along the way;there’s a website with activities and competitions, as well as local libraries holding events to coincide with the theme. When it’s all over there’s a certificate to collect for their achievements.
We also reward the children who have taken part over the summer when they return to school.
