Reading Challenges

Summer Reading Challenge The Summer Reading Challenge 2023, which is run by the Reading Agency, launches in Cambridgeshire Libraries on Saturday July 9th this year. The challenge is a great way to encourage children to keep reading through the summer holidays and will be available at all Cambridgeshire Libraries and on the Mobile Library. This year's theme is Gadgeteers and has been developed in partnership with the Science Museum Group. You can sign up at your local library for free and, by reading library books over the summer holiday, children can collect stickers to complete their collector's poster and help the Gadgeteers create inventions and plan an epic summer party. Children who finish at least six books by the end of the challenge will receive a special Gadgeteers bookmark and earn a certificate.
It is really important to encourage children to read for pleasure. Research shows that children who enjoy reading are three times more likely to read above the level expected for their age as those who don’t enjoy reading. It can also support their well-being and help them to perform better in a range of subjects at school. 
Have fun!

What is Book Bingo?
Book Bingo is a bingo card with lots of little reading challenges. These are fun ways to get us excited again about reading.
How do we play Book Bingo?

Playing is simple! Print out a copy of the bingo board for each of your children. When they perform one of the reading challenges on the card, they get to colour in that square.

The winner is the reader who completes the traditional bingo wins. That is completing a row across, a column down, or a diagonal. (You could do 4 corners too.)

ULTIMATE CHALLENGE -  Can you complete the entire card? I think you can do it!


If you are unable to print from home, please contact your child's class teacher and they will be able to print a bingo card for you.
