Read a River

Read a River Half Term Challenge 


Following on from the success of our ‘Drop Everything And Read’ (DEAR) initiative, we are now launching our ‘Read a River’ challenge.  This is aimed at the children exploring the wider application of reading, celebrating the breadth of their reading and truly understanding what it means to be a reader in today’s world.


The children will therefore need to create a poster in the shape of a river showing extracts of everything that they have read over the half term period.  You could include signs read in shops, labels on food, news-pages on the internet, football scores, emails and instruction manuals as well as books read for pleasure. These posters must not be larger than A3 (but need only be A4).


These entries will then be used to create a whole school reading display in the library to replace our current DEAR display. Please submit your reading river to your class teacher by Friday 12th June with your name and class clearly marked on the back.


Every child who enters this challenge will receive a small prize.


Good Luck and Happy Reading!
