Dive into a book this Summer !

Dear Parents/Carers and children,

 

Don’t forget this Summer to keep reading for pleasure. We would like you to take photographs of your children ‘caught reading’ . Send the photographs into school in September and we will display them….and remember it doesn’t matter where, the more extreme the better! Below you will find useful websites to visit and places of interest where reading is promoted this Summer in Liverpool. Have fun!

The City of Readers’ website will host an amazing on-line original story by Liverpool author Frank Cottrell Boyce. http://www.cityofreaders.org/


What is the Summer Reading Challenge?

The Summer Reading Challenge takes place every year during the summer holidays. You can sign up at your local library, then read six library books of your choice, collecting stickers and other rewards along the way – all FREE. And now, all year round, the Summer Reading Challenge website helps you keep track of your reading, find new books to read, take part in competitions and play games visit: http://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/
This year's Mythical Maze-themed Summer Reading Challenge has an extra special new dimension to it, a free augmented reality app for this year's Challenge. Compatible with both Android and iOS operating systems, the app can be used to scan the character stickers that children receive after each two books they read. Scanning the stickers will launch games and animations on a smart phone or tablet. The app also works with the Challenge's Mythical Hunt which libraries are running during the summer.
