Challenges & Competitions
Read Around the World Challenge
Our whole school reading challenge has now started and ends on Monday 19th June.
Here's how it works:
* Every time you read a book set on a continent, chat briefly to Mrs Parr about it and receive a stamp in your reading passport.
* The more you read, the more passports you fill and certificates you receive.
* You can colour in your map every time you 'visit' a continent.
* The most widely 'travelled'/read pupil will receive a top prize at the end of the challenge! But everyone will receive certificates and stickers for taking part throughout.
Do I have to take part?
Although this is not compulsory (you don't have to do it), we would love as many of you to take part. We hope it will encourage you to enjoy reading more and that you will learn about other countries and cultures throughout the world.
Need some reading suggestions?
You can look at our reading list of suggested titles for inspiration. All the titles listed are in our school library. Reading lists can be found in each classroom and in the library. You can also download it - link is below.
You can also read your own books from home or from the public library; they can be printed books, e-books or audio (talking) books, or a mixture!
Follow us as we scratch the map!
Every time a book is read which is located in a particular country, we'll scratch it off our map (next to the fish tank). Let's see how much of the map we can scratch off!
Enjoy the challenge and have fun reading!
