Summer holiday activities

Summer holiday activities

For Primaries


Summer Reading Challenge

The SRC needs no introduction, and this year’s theme of Space Chase is designed to appeal to all children interested in space. See how many children in your school you can encourage to take part and complete.


Book Bingo

An add-on book activity for the Summer to maintain that reading throughout the holidays.


Story Museum

The new Museum galleries in Oxford are scheduled to open in March 2020, but there are still activities over the holidays for families to point your parents towards. Plus, as a school you can book now to be one of the first in the country to see the new Museum.


For Secondaries

Don’t feel left out of the SRC, as your students can volunteer in public libraries in one of the roles designed to help libraries promote the SRC or listen to children talk about their reading. Contact your local library to find out more.

The Teacher Advisory Panel at the Story Museum would especially like to hear from teachers, teaching assistants or librarians based in secondary schools and sixth form. If you’d like to know more, do email Isy Mead, the Head of Learning. isabella.mead[at]storymuseum.org.uk
