What is the reading challenge?

Welcome to the Endeavour ‘12 Books’ Reading Challenge


We are challenging all the children at Endeavour to take part in our school reading challenge. Each child in each year group is set the challenge of reading 12 different books over the course of the school year around themes set by the class teachers; ideally, the children will be challenging themselves to complete 2 of the challenges each half term.


The teachers will keep a copy of the challenges in school and when your child has read one of the books, they will go to the teacher or TA in their class and tell them about which book they read, and which challenge they have achieved; the teachers will then sign that challenge on their sheet. We encourage the children to keep a record on this sheet of which challenges they have completed, which can be kept at home.


When all 12 challenges have been completed, the children will receive a special certificate in Celebration Assembly and be entered into an End of Year Prize Raffle Draw.


We ask you to encourage the children to engage with their reading challenge; we hope that this will promote varied and extensive reading whilst still giving the children some independence in what they choose to read.


Speak to your child’s class teacher or Miss Cartwright if you have any questions.
