Reading Challenge!

Reading widely is so important and we want you to keep reading during these strange times! Don't forget to expand your horizons, de-stress and help your wellbeing by reading.

Mr Dickinson says, ‘Whilst in lockdown it is so important for you to read to develop your literacy skills but also for the joy of reading. Reading a book can help you to escape into a different world, live an adventure and develop your imagination. Use the Reading Challenge frame to inspire you and take up a challenge.”

Read a variety of texts and see if you can tick off all these challenges! Your teachers will be glad to recommend their favourites too! You can use a blank template to show what you have done and upload for us to see via Google Classroom for English.

Good luck and happy reading!
