How to get involved

We would love you to encourage your child to read throughout the summer on Reading Plus. As a bonus, or if you are unable to access Reading Plus, an excellent way to engage your child is to take part in the Reading Plus Summer Challenge Bingo. Task your child to tick off all the activities before they return to school to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

Any material they can access at home or their local library will work.
