ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ON THE SUMMER READING CHALLENGE 2021?
In our school assembly today, we were invited to take part in this years reading challenge - Cumbria Libraries are encouraging children to take part in the Summer Reading Challenge, the theme is 'Wild World Heroes' and will be a celebration of reading, nature and action for the environment.
This annual national event, presented by The Reading Agency and funded by Arts Council England, encourages children aged 4 to 11 to set themselves a reading challenge to help prevent the summer reading “dip.” Cumbria Libraries will help support and motivate
thousands of children to keep reading to build their skills and confidence.
Signing up is free, participants just need to be a library member (which is also free!).
The Challenge is simple; children read whatever they like in their chosen format over the summer holidays to receive incentives and a certificate once they’ve completed it. They can read fiction, fact books, poetry, joke books, picture books or graphic novels. Audiobooks and eBooks can all be used to complete the Challenge.
The Summer Reading Challenge begins on July 10th and ends in the middle of September. Find out more by visiting https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/
