‘Play Together, Learn Together, Achieve Together’


Every October half term, we set reading challenges for the children to complete with their parents.  The reading challenges are:

Who can read the most over half term?

Who can read in the strangest place?

Who can read in a library?
Who can read in a book shop?

Parents upload photos onto Tapestry and each entry earns children a 'Lucky Ducky' ticket.  At the end of the first week back, all names who have entered are put into a hat and the lucky winner wins a book prize.  There is a book prize for each category.

These challenges have been extremely popular over the years and we've had photos of children reading in gliders, in front of a windmill in Amsterdam and even sitting on a tractor!
