Tesco Bank's Summer Reading Challenge
Congratulations to 16 of our pupils who completed the Challenge and whose efforts resulted in our school winning the trophy again this year!
The Tesco Summer Reading Challenge encourages children ages 4-11 to visit their local library and read 6 books over the holidays, a time when traditionally literacy levels dip.
First Minister’s Challenge
The First Minister wants to make sure every child in Scotland has an equal opportunity to experience the huge benefits that reading for pleasure brings.
The First Minister’s Reading Challenge aims to build on the work already taking place in schools across the country to encourage children to read widely, explore a range of books and develop a love of reading. The main focus of the Challenge is to encourage reading for pleasure and support schools, libraries and communities to build reading cultures.
Children in P4-P7 in every school in Scotland have been invited to take part in the Challenge. Pupils have been issued with their own Reading Passport that they can use to log their reading journeys.
In addition to encouraging pupils to read for pleasure, we would like to extend a warm welcome to any members of the community who may wish to come in and share a story with the pupils. If you think you can spare a few minutes we would love to hear from you, please contact the school office and we can arrange a suitable time for your visit.
