Reading Challenge

St Joseph's Reading Challenge 2024


It's that time of year again when we challenge the children to read more!


Please see the letter below with all the details of how the challenge will run and how you can support your child. 



Reading Challenge parent/carer letter

They can read independently, read with an adult, be read to by an adult or even listen to an audio book.  


Thank you for your support with this exciting challenge.


Ready, steady, READ!

Reading Challenge - Hertford Library

The librarians have been working hard to source as many of the books as possible. They are looking forward to helping to support the children to complete the reading challenge. They will also be able to guide the children towards other books by the same author, if your initial choice isn't available - this is a perfectly acceptable reading list alternative.


Book Share

If you have copies of any of the class reading list books at home and are happy to lend them to other children, please send them to the appropriate class teacher. If you write your child's name in the front they can be returned at the end of the reading challenge and they will be lent out to our keen readers.
