Our class does the Premiers Reading Challenge As a group, you do not need to do it at home. But reading lots of books just for fun is always a good thing.
Each week we choose a book from the list, read it and then do a follow up activity. You will often see these tasks on the pin up boards around the room.
At the end of the year each child who began the year with us will get a certificate. If your child transfers from another school we will check with their previous teacher. If your child begins part way through the year we need at least 12 weeks prior to September 1st for a certificate to be achievable.
If your child continues to do the challenge each year they can earn their bronze, silver, gold, champion, legend and hall of fame medals. In 2012 the Reading Challenge introduced “Readers for Life”
