Get Involved in the Summer 2022 Reading Challenge!
Gadgeteers - Presented by The Reading Agency in partnership with our local libraries.
Independent evaluation has found that engagement in the Summer Reading Challenge statistically significantly increases children’s reading frequency, reading confidence and reading enjoyment.
The benefits of supporting engagement to schools include:
- To help prevent a “dip” in literacy over the summer holiday
- Ensure pupils are ready for their return to school for the Autumn term
- Support transition between key stages and year groups
- Improve language skills, especially for those for whom English is a second language
Norfolk Library and Information Service is delivering this years Summer Reading Challenge which is provided by The Reading Agency in partnership with the Science Museum Group. The theme is Gadgeteers, and it has an exciting STEM focus.
