Summer Reading Challenge



On Monday at a special assembly we launched the 2018 SUMMER READING CHALLENGE.

The SUMMER READING CHALLENGE, which has taken place annually since 1999, aims to help children to retain their reading skills and confidence while school is out. Organised by the Reading Agency and run in partnership with the UK public library network, the campaign seems three quarters of a million children take part each year.
Children are challenged to read at least SIX library books over the summer and collect prizes, such as stickers along the way to earn their final challenge certificate and medal.
Each year, the SUMMER READING CHALLENGE has a new creative theme. 2018 will see the Challenge focus on mischief and pranks, as inspired by the much-loved iconic children's title Beano marking it's 80th anniversary.

We invited two librarians from our local Islington library at Archway to come into school to talk to the children about joining in with 'Mischief Makers' Summer Reading Challenge.
They explained how to join in  and showed the children a fun video.

It is simple.

1. Register at Local Library (Archway Library will be at our Summer Fair on Friday 6th July)

2. Read 6 books over the summer

At the end of the assembly all the children who had joined in and completed last year's Summer Reading Challenge and/or Winter Reading Challenge were presented with a certificate.

2016 - 40 children participated

We will celebrate everyone who completes the challenge after the holidays.

So come on and join in and make St Joseph's the best read school in Islington!

Thank You

to the librarians, Paul and Kevin, from Archway Library
