Summer Reading

Oxford Owls

Use the address below to access the free e-books on the Oxford Owls web-site. The books use the same colour band system we use in school and are  a good resource for practising reading during the summer holidays. 

The e-books can be used on PCs, lap-tops or tablets. You will be required to register to access the books, but there is no charge. 


Summer Reading Challenge

The Summer Reading Challenge is open to all primary school aged children and is designed for all reading abilities. Schools  work with local libraries and give out information to encourage children to take part, and most libraries run Summer Reading Challenge linked early years activity for pre-schoolers. This year, the theme for the Summer Reading Challenge is 'Space Chase', inspired by the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. 

To take part in Space Chase, children need only to sign up at their nearest library, where they will be given a collector’s folder in which to keep a record of their reading journey.

This year libraries have extended the scheme to include all children aged up to 11 years. They are invited to borrow six library books over the summer. As they read (or are read to by parents and carers) they will team up with futuristic family the Rockets for an exciting space mission. Books are vanishing off library shelves and the Rocket family has been tasked with getting them back. Library staff and volunteers need the help of local children to complete the mission.

Participating children can read whatever they like – fiction, factual books, joke books, picture books, audio books or e-books – as long as these are borrowed from the library.

During their reading journey children will collect stickers, bookmarks, a space-themed snakes and ladders game and an alien window clinger. Certificates and medals are awarded to children who complete the challenge.
