Reading regularly and reading for pleasure has a huge impact on your wellbeing and academic attainment. Try to read every day of the summer holidays if you can and join in our Summer Reading Challenge. Read at least 6 books between now and September to enter the draw to choose the books the library buys in the Autumn term. Read any 6 books from the list on the entry form and you can also win a box of Krispy Kreme donuts! Make sure you get the right list for your year group.
The books are recommendations from the librarians but remember, you don’t have to read them to enter. Try to include one non-fiction book, a graphic novel or manga, some poetry, a magazine and listen to a podcast.
Fill out the details on the back of the form and hand it in to the library in September.
Looking for something to do this summer? Oblivious to an obvious choice?
If not only for your own enjoyment, then for a little competition- the Summer Reading Challenge gives everyone something worthwhile to read.
It’s all completely up to you! Read as many books from any of the following categories as you can. But make sure you only enter one book per category. Either pick out your own book from outside school, or books that the library has categorised especially.
The winner with the most amount of books read can choose new books to join the library shelves. Which book do you keep begging for the library to get? Well, now you have a chance to choose!
Keep a record of the book title that you have read and their category- either print out the form below or go old school and write it down. Remember to include your name and form!
All entries are to be returned to the library for back to school in September. But that’s more than a month of page- turning excitment away. So for now:
Don’t get the brain drain over summer and turn into a robot- interpret the titles however you wish, as long as there is some sort of plausable reason. Have fun this summer and make sure to comment below:
