The Reading Challenge

The Reading Challenge is a programme of books chosen for each year group that every child reads over the course of the year. The children should be encouraged to read them individually, or with an adult where necessary. 

When does it start?

The Reading Challenge begins in September. To complete the challenge, children must read a book a week. These books help our children to develop a 'love of reading', reading for pleasure. Every half term, children who have read the correct number of books will receive a certificate of achievement for reaching the half term target.

When are the books read? 

Teachers will sometimes read these books in story time but the emphasis is on children reading these books at home during their leisure time. 

Each class has a Reading Challenge Grid on display in their classroom. As children read a book, they put a sticker on the grid. The children love seeing their book tally increase over time and remember the books they have previously read. 

After reading a book, children will be encouraged to complete a book review as part of their homework.
