The first week of the school summer holidays and we’re at the local library to look at the summer reading challenge. We found a flyer in the school reception area and it’s all about myths and legends this year. It seems there is a challenge every year to encourage children of all ages to read even though they aren’t in school. My daughter is a very keen reader and the theme has really captured her imagination as she loves dinosaurs and dragons!
Having registered with the library staff, she’s been given a little pack of reading puzzles and accompanying activities to do in the library, at home and online. It’s a great use of different technologies, with an app and website as well as paper activities to do. So we’ve spotted Leprechauns and Minotaurs, Mermaids and Dragons, and Spiders and Medusa! She’s been colouring in loads of pictures and we’ve chosen 8 books for her to read, covering a variety of subjects. There are prizes along the way for the number of books read and she can’t wait to get to 6 and get a set of stickers! So keep an eye on the facebook page for what we get up to with those!
