Summer reading

Enjoy the summer holiday and have lots of adventures. Don't forget, that you can also have an adventure through books. Sadly, Hargreaves class did not get to finish their latest class book, we ran out of time! We were reading The Adventures of The Wishing Chair, maybe one member of the class will finish reading it at home and let the others know.

Remember you can also take part in the Library reading challenge. It is designed for children aged between 4 and 11 and this year the theme of the pack celebrates Roald Dahl. The information also says e-library books are also allowed this year (yes you can borrow certain books from the library and download them for up to 3 weeks at a time), but please ask your own library if this is allowed.

Many Christ Church children have taken part in the challenge over the years and it is great to see them share their medals and certificates in assembly. For the past few years thre has also been an app to download to use alongside the reading. It is available on Apple or Android. You collect virtual items from the library, which in turn unlock games.

If you can not get to the library or do not have a library card and so can not borrow e-books, do not forget Keystage 1 and Reception children can access Bug Club at home on a computer or mobile device. These will not count towards the library challenge, but will give you access to a selection of different books, if you have read all of your own.

Enjoy the summer and happy reading!
