Reading Challenge


We have set the children a challenge to take a photo of themselves reading at home. This can be reading to a pet or family member, in front of the Christmas tree or in the strangest place/pose possible! Once you have taken the photo, please email it to the school email with their teacher's name and class as the subject.

We look forward to seeing your excellent ideas!
