12 Dec Winter Reading Challenge 2021
The Reading agency is running an online Winter Mini Challenge to motivate children to read at home which is a smaller version of the Summer Reading Challenge. Hackney libraries are supporting this by having paper copies of the reading records/certificates for pupils in all their libraries.
Winter Mini Reading Challenge:
Taking part in the Winter Mini Challenge is simple. Read at least three books between 1st December and 16 January and add them to your online profile at wintermini.org.uk to earn fun digital rewards! They can be any books you like including ebooks and audio books. You’ll find loads of other great stuff on the website too, including games, book reviews, reading activities and content from the best children’s authors and illustrators around. For parents there is a Home Zone and Library Zone.The Wild World hero characters are there to help as is the summer reading challenge list of books linked to nature and the environment.
Or you can pop in to any Hackney library to join in person. They have activity sheets and your very own reading passport to record the books you have read plus all children completing the challenge will receive a certificate!
A reminder to check https://hackney.gov.uk/libraries-whats-on as many libraries are holding Christmas activities. You can follow them on twitter on @Hackneylibs and facebook @HackneyLibraries.
