Following on from last year’s successful challenge, Year 7 have been asked to read a book over Christmas from a different writer, genre or category than the one they would normally pick. The aim of the challenge is to widen the students’ reading matter and give them the opportunity to experience a variety of writing styles and vocabulary.
Hopefully students will ask friends, family, teachers and older students for suggestions to help choose a book. Fiction, biographies, autobiographies, travel logs etc are all suitable for the challenge. The school library has just received a collection of new books which will be available for students to read.
Parents can help by encouraging their children to read for at least half an hour every day over the holiday period.
Good luck Year 7!
