These activities shall be added to over the next couple of weeks however, as several are project-based, the children can, with support of parents, direct their own learning. Click on the Home Learning document to discover the activities.

READING CHALLENGES AND ACTIVITIES

Literacy Trust has put together some superb materials, some of which are below:

 

It’s not that easy to travel at the moment but we are thinking about people all over the world. Why not read your way around the world with the Reading Miles Global Challenge.

Collect 500 reading miles for every 10 minutes you spend reading, either alone or with a parent, carer, or your brother or sister. You could even video call your relatives and read aloud to them. Collect reading miles in a special reading passport on your very own reading world tour - a whopping 33,000 miles (or 11 hours) in total!

The challenge is split into seven journeys, each of which finishes in a ‘checkpoint city’.

The following resources are available to download and print off to enable you to take part in the challenge.

  • A wall map of the world charting the Reading Miles Global Challenge route
  • A passport to record the reading
  • A certificate for when you complete the challenge
  • Postcards which you can complete when you reach checkpoint cities

Before there was Messi, there was Diego Maradona.
