Aimed at children aged 4-11 years, the Summer Reading Challenge can help primary schools avoid the “summer holiday dip” in pupils’ reading motivation and attainment, widen pupils’ reading range and repertoire and boost their desire to read at home, as shown by research carried out by the UK Literacy Association (UKLA).
Please see the downloadable Staffroom Poster explaining the challenge.
