The children may continue to come to school in their own clothes (non-school uniform) for the rest of this week in order to keep them comfortable until the heatwave is completely over. Please don't forget we finish at 1.30pm on Friday. Gates will be opened at 1.25pm.

Summer Reading Challenge!

This year, we are encouraging children to participate in the Summer Reading Challenge. We have recently had a visit from Wiltshire Library which explained the challenge for the children. Below, we have attached some information about the Summer Reading Challenge.

ThSummer Reading Challenge, presented by The Reading Agency, is delivered in partnership with public libraries and funded by Arts Council England. The Challenge encourages children aged 4 to 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 reading ‘dip’.

Each year the Challenge motivates over 700,000 children to keep reading to build their skills and confidence. This year’s Summer Reading Challenge theme is Gadgeteers, created in partnership with Science Museum Group and illustrated by top children’s writer and illustrator Julian Beresford.

This year’s theme ‘Gadgeteers’ will spark children’s curiosity about the world around them. With resources and activities from the Science Museum Group, the Challenge focuses on inspiring children to see the science and innovation behind everyday objects, showing that reading and science are for everyone.

The Challenge and the accompanying book collection will show that imagination can unlock endless possibilities, and the library is where this starts. Through taking part in the Challenge, with free packs from public libraries or on the children’s website, children will be able to join six fictional ‘Gadgeteers.’ The characters use their curiosity and wonder to understand the science behind a whole range of interests from fashion and technology to cooking and music.

The Challenge will launch in libraries in Scotland and N.I. on Saturday 25 June and in England and Wales on Saturday 9 July. Children can also join in the fun online, here on the official Challenge website.

 

We hope you enjoy and participate in the challenge - happy reading!
