In assembly this week, Miss Fostir launched this year's Summer Reading Challenge!

Organised by The Reading Agency, in partnership with public libraries across the country, the challenge encourages children aged 4-11 to enjoy the benefits of reading for pleasure over the summer holidays, providing lots of fun, as well as helping to prevent the 'Summer Slide’ in reading.


What is the Summer Slide?

Without practice during the Summer, children's reading skills slide...

The Summer Slide


The Summer Reading Challenge has been designed to help beat the Summer Slide!


This year's Summer Reading Challenge is presented by the Gadgeteers. Gadgeteers love creating new inventions and working together to solve problems. They spend their days using their curiosity, creativity and innovation to come up with lots of awesome inventions! They get lots of their great ideas and information from reading books. The Gadgeteers are inviting you to complete the Summer Reading Challenge and become a Gadgeteer too!
