Last term our first years began a literacy intervention called The Reading Challenge. They chose a wide variety of books from the library and their mission was to read and review these books within 6 weeks. This went extremely well, and has fostered a culture of reading for pleasure with them. The Reading Challenge was linked to their reading homework as they had to read the books every night in order to complete the challenge. A total of 75 books were read and reviewed by the class during the challenge. To celebrate the success we had a party where all students received a certificate of achievement. Well done to all who participated.
