Prep Summer Reading Challenge

We can feel the excitement in the air about the 2021/22 Summer Reading Challenge. Below is a copy of the challenge card that all students have received. Hopefully this is helpful in the event of a lost card, or for you to create a second copy if someone else at home wants to join in. The research shows us that when good reading habits are modelled by those around children, they will copy what they see and form their own positive reading habits! Whilst us adults would mostly read for enjoyment; this is also another wonderful benefit to reading.

Please don’t forget to log the books read through the Google Form which can be accessed via the QR code. If you would like a quick rundown of the challenge, please check out the video.
