This week, LRC Leaders have been going into House Assemblies to launch the Reading Challenge. The challenge is to read twelve books from twelve different categories over the course of the 2019/20 academic year.
This is a great way to encourage students to try a different genre of book than they would usually select. You never know, they may find a whole new range of reading material that they enjoy! I am hoping that lots of students will get involved and that it creates a lot of conversations about reading and what choices people have made.

How to get Involved
Reading Challenge Booklets can be collected from Mrs Davies in the LRC.
Once a student has read a book, they simply need to complete a review of it in their booklet, state if they would recommend it and give it a star rating.
Repeat twelve times!
Once students have completed the challenge they can hand their booklet into Mrs Davies in the LRC for a chance to win some great prizes.
