Some kind and very brave Cambridge library staff joined us in assembly this week to introduce the children to this year's Summer Reading Challenge:
The Summer Reading Challenge is the UK’s biggest free reading for pleasure event for children. It is run by the national charity The Reading Agency in partnership with the UK public library network.
The aim of the Challenge is to encourage children to read any six books of their choice from their library during the summer holidays.
The Challenge offers children and families an enjoyable activity in the six-week summer break from school when reading skills and confidence can dip, commonly known as the ‘summer slide’.
Children receive special rewards each time they finish a book and there’s a certificate for everyone who completes the Challenge.
