In addition, this year the Summer Reading Challenge will be offering author events to the two Bradford schools with the highest percentage of children participating in the challenge and the highest percentage of children who complete the challenge i.e. read six books.  Record Breakers Summer Reading Challenge information packs will be arriving shortly, please look out for them and use the material included to promote the challenge in your school.  Last year Bradford increased participation in the Summer Reading Challenge by 10% ahead of the 2.2% national average. Your pupils could be missing out on this important and enjoyable way to maintain or improve reading levels throughout the summer.
