Summer Reading Bingo


We’d really like all the children to take part in summer reading bingo. It is an activity for children to complete over the summer holidays. The focus is on reading for pleasure experiences rather than specific texts, with activities like make a den and read inside, read in the dark using a torch and read to a pet or a soft toy. Children can choose what they read for the challenges.

​When pupils return to school after the holidays there will be certificates and maybe even some prizes for a completed line or for a full house! 

​There is a choice of two boards, one with 25 squares and for the younger children, one with 9 squares. These will be given to the children next week or can be printed from the whole school pages on the home learning section of the website. The teachers are planning on taking part too.

We’d love to see some photographs of you completing activities from the challenge so that we can create a special newsletter in the autumn term to celebrate our summer of reading.
