The Bradford Libraries Rhyme Challenge is taking place Sept 2022-March2023. The challenge devised by the library service takes place in toddler groups, pre-schools, nurseries, schools and family hubs across the District as well as libraries – if you would
like to take part as a setting please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01274 433651
Parents and children learning rhymes together can help young children create social bonds, develop speech and language and also be a foundation for later emerging reading skills.
Over 6,000 people in Bradford took part in the challenge in 2021/22 and Bradford Libraries are hoping this number can be beaten in 2022/23.
Libraries are taking the challenge on the following dates. Here are the links to our facebook post, twitter post and webpage – please do share or link in to the posts on your social media and let families know where they can take the challenge.
