The Big Friendly Read Summer Reading Challenge 2016 Information Packs contain lots of information to help you to promote the summer reading challenge in your school. Get the children in your school ready to start the challenge which begins on Saturday
16 July and is available all through the summer until Saturday 10 September.
The pack has a advocacy letter for parents for you to photocopy, display poster & materials of all the challenge incentives and the Big Friendly Read Summer activities booklet, which can either be displayed or photocopied and given to each child. If you
would like to organise a class visit to your local library or to have a member of library staff come in for a school assembly there is a contact list also provided in the pack.
The Summer Reading Challenge is a national scheme to encourage primary age children to continue to read throughout the summer holidays. Research has shown that the Summer Reading Challenge improves children's enjoyment of reading, as well as their reading
range, confidence and motivation and it helps prevent the summer holiday dip in literacy skills.
That's not all - this year the school with the highest percentage of pupils participating and the school with the highest percentage of completers will receive an author visit for the whole school to enjoy.
Last year's winner were St Mary's & St Peter's Catholic Primary, Keelham Primary, Menston Primary and Girlington Primary - each receiving a visit from children's author Phil Earle.
