After our local library lost it’s funding, we decided to allow children to borrow books from our school library during the holidays…and so the Bowling Park’s Reading Challenge was born! Each term, children can take part by borrowing books from the library and reading them during the holidays. When the children bring the books back to school they receive a special reading challenge certificate.
The challenges are a great way to encourage children to read at home, and for parents to be involved in their children’s learning. Parents can, if they wish, come along to the library sessions to help their children choose a book!
