Today, was an exciting day as we have launched our whole school Around the World Reading Challenge. Every child in the school has a reading passport, where they will collect and record the reading that they are doing. Primary 4-7 are taking part in the First Minister’s Reading Challenge and will plan their ‘Around the World’ route accordingly. Primary 1-3 have the opportunity to take picture books and non-fiction books home, from either the class library or the school library, to share with their families. These books can be recorded in their Reading Passport, alongside any other reading book, to help them get around their route. There are certificates and prizes for children along the way. The Around the World Reading Challenge will last all year – how many books will the school read?
