Let’s Get Reading! This coming year we are taking part in the Lancashire-wide ‘We are Reading Campaign’, and we will be working hard to promote and encourage reading for pleasure and a lifelong love of reading to everyone in our school family.
To launch our ‘We Are Reading’ campaign, we would like you to take part in two Summer Reading Challenges.
Challenge 1 – Summer Reading Bingo
Your child should have brought home a Summer Reading Bingo sheet. If not you can download it from the school website – look for the We Are Reading page. This has lots of different fun ideas of where and how to read. Your child simply has to do each activity (preferably for at least 5 – 10 minutes) and get the square initialled by an adult. Team points will be awarded for completed sheets returned to school by the 14th of September.
If you need another copy of it, you can download it here: Summer Reading Bingo.
Challenge 2 – Extreme Reading Challenge
Sometimes you just can’t put a good book down. When you are hooked on a story you might end up reading it in some very strange places – whilst walking down the street, in the bath, under the bed covers with a torch…
Where is the strangest place that you like to read? To enter this challenge all you have to do is ask someone to take a photo of you reading somewhere unusual and bring it to school with you on or before the 14th of September.
Prizes will be awarded for unique locations!
We can’t wait to hear all about what you’ve read and where.
