Launch of The Reading Agency's Summer Reading Challenge and Teacher's Reading Challenge
After a hugely successful inaugural year that saw over 2,400 people take part, The Teachers’ Reading Challenge will return on Saturday 10 July 2021! The Challenge encourages school and library staff to expand their knowledge of children’s books and develop their understanding of reading for pleasure pedagogy. The Challenge is for anybody who is a Reader Teacher, including all education professionals, public and school library staff, and trainee teachers. Sign up ahead of the launch at teachersreadingchallenge.org.uk
For this year’s Challenge, The Reading Agency has partnered with WWF to create ‘Wild World Heroes’, inspiring children to take action for nature and the environment. With exclusive incentives to collect and plenty of brilliant books to enjoy, the Challenge is the perfect summer activity to build young readers’ skills and confidence during the school break, and will be available in libraries across the UK this summer.
