Summer Reading Challenge

This summer holidays we are setting a challenge and running a competition!

We would like your child to see if he or she can read in the most unusual or imaginative place as possible or in as many different locations and settings as they can!

We would like you to photograph your children reading in their unusual places and send these in at the beginning of September. In the past we have had children reading on the beach, on a boat, on the swings at the park and even in a shopping trolley!

There will be prizes for the most unusual place and for the children who have read in the most interesting settings.

We look forward to seeing your ‘Reading Snaps’ in September!
